Slightly off-topic: I see you have a device there with no name.
try running (as root)
This will give you more up-to-date names of devices. Note that it does
not make those devices more supported than before. the USB bus
merely reports the vendor and product IDs (well, also a few other
similar fields). The name you see there is only set from them.

This driver has become part of the upstream kernel as of 2.6.27 . But that
kernel is not yet in Debian. Try:

At least in Lenny I see one. Try
aptitude install gspca-modules-`uname -r`
If no luck, you'll need to build that module for your kernel:
aptitude install gspca-source
m-a a-i gspca
