Be aware that the marketing name of a webcam does not speak for their
inner values. Means, 2 cam with nearly identical names can have very
different electronics and thus requiring different drivers, or even one
not being supported on Linux while the other one is.
So please use google to check that the cam you intend to buy really has
Linux driver support. The QuickCam 4000 Pro is supported by the pwc
module, I have serious doubts the model you mention is as well. See
