[lug] Linux Compatible Webcam

I would like to keep an eye on my back field with a
webcam.(This is for keeping an eye on the stock.)
I would use a window in my computer room for the webcam to
look out, so it need not be weather proof or wireless. I
tried it with my present webcam, a Logitech
Quickcam Express. Looking out into the daylight, it is
completely white. Plus it is old enough, that if it did
work, the resolution is so poor, I probably wouldn't
recognize the horses from the cows.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a webcam that is linux
compatible, can be used in broad daylight, and has
reasonable resolution?
