I need a list or models of webcams that work out of the box
with Ubuntu 9.10. I have this old Logitech webcam and when I plug
it in USB nothing happens and I even did many commands that
I found through researching google and nothing.

If a web camera is UVC compliant in theory it is supported. Sometimes weird hardware ID's on some of them cause it to not be but not the norm. I bought a cheap, cheap, web cam off ebay and it works very well. I paid like 10 bucks for it with shipping too.
