Works fine, you need the pwc module, which builds fine for the pre-built
2.6.11-powerpc kernels, thanks to the module support implemented in it (you
just need to set KSRC=/lib/modules/2.6.11-powerpc). There are even official
packages, but they are in NEW maybe.

2.6.12 should have modules for it thouggh, but i didn't test them yet with the
usb webcam, the external free one used above is ok though.
