If your using a Debian based distro you might try...

Code:
sudo  apt-get install libv4l-0
then...

Code:
sudo export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
then...

Code:
skype -v
Hope that helps

If you are really have to use that particular cam you might try installing 8.04 LTS (better driver support).

If not I would suggest going with a cam on this list...
