I'm afraid that 3.1 doesn't like QuickCams. When I was using a b/w Quickcam
on my PII 300 with a whole load of RAM and stupidly fast hard drives, loading
3.1 dragged the whole thing to a grinding crawl.

My advice? Either get a non-parallel based solution, or use the new Cornell
client when it becomes generally available.
