There is webcam software at http://hobbes.nmsu.edu but is it for an USB web camera or for some other type/connected web cam?

I think it's all parralel port stuff. I searched some time ago, and found nothing that would support more modern webcams.

That is what I was afaid of. Do they still make any parallel or serial port web cams? Everything seems be replaced by USB versions of the products (ie; keyboards, mice, speakers, printers, scanners, etc).

I don't think they're still made. They are much slower than USB. But you might find one on E-Bay. Bbut if you do, the software support under OS/2 is pretty bad.
