nice hack, but is anyone going to hack it so people on G3s slower than 600Mhz (like me) can use it?

Maybe that is why it is still not working on my maachine. I have a B&W G3 400.

I got my USB cam working great but still won't work with ichat. :(

Have you seen this nice little app iChatUSB (http://www.ecamm.com/mac/ichatusbcam/) ? It lets me use my 20-pound ($30 approx?) logitech express usb webcam with iChat and it works a treat! No shelling out for iSight needed!
