I recently purchased the Microsoft LifeCam HD-5001 webcam. Will I be able to install the driver needed to run it on linux, or is it only compatible with windows?

If it is possible to use on ubuntu, could anyone show me how to install the driver using the CD that it came with?

My microsoft HD 5000 webcam works quite ok out of the box. (using guvcview to configure it)
I only have trouble when wanting to use manual settings (instead of auto)
