I'm not sure what a "CuSeeMe driver" is..CU doesn't come with its own
capture device driver as far as I know.

I have an STB TV PCI, B&W Quickcam, Softcam, and CU-Doodle all listed as
capture devices. I have them all enabled and CU allows me to choose which
device to use.

You shouldn't have to reboot to toggle it on and off from the Control
panel. If you enable all of the devices, then choose the Softcam capture
device in the program, it will let you toggle between the available ones
within Softcam.
