I have found sites with open source drivers ( to support webcam use on Linux. However, does anyone know of any (external, not notebook built-in) that are officially supported by manufacturers as being compatible with Linux? Thanks.

Not sure of the application you're looking for, but IP cams with a built in web server would be OS neutral. Admittedly it would probably cost more than a normal webcam. Not quite the solution you asked for, but I figured I'd toss it out there since it would work as well.

Creative Labs have some support for them, in a list of available drivers. they don't make all the drivers themselves though, but its still nice to see the organisational effort.
