you plug in a linux compatible webcam and then test the video in Skype if it works. if it's recognised and it works then all is set.

An easy way to test if the webcam is working outside of Skype is to use Cheese


sudo apt-get install cheese

Then like mastablasta said, just go into the settings menu on Skype and select "Test Video"
