Hi, i hope I'm in the right place

So i have a microsoft lifecam vx-3000 and having trouble getting it to work, i got the Cheese webcam booth program and tried to start it, the green light on top of the cam turned on and i got a green screen from the cam feed

Is there a driver that I'm missing ?

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10

I did google and find this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=381188

And read threw it but was not any closer to solving my problem sins I'm fairly new to linux and I am not sure what all these commands are
