The uvcvideo supports a bunch of them, see the list at
http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/ . It's integrated in the lenny kernel
(probably not the etch one, but you could build the module separatedly).

There might be other drivers, too.

I'd say no. There are some that work, and some that don't. However, in
Etch things will be slightly more difficult than in Lenny.
