Here's a "creative" way to use multiple QuickCAMs on an IBM compatable PC.

CU later,

I have three b&w qcams running with Linux, with no problem whatsoever.
I wrote a short report about it to this group a few days ago, I will
send a copy of that to you.

The windows "quickpict" software does support multiple qcams, while
the "quickmovie" software does not.
