It's going to depend on the camera. First you'll have to access the USB port, then send an initialization message to the camera, then get it to take a picture. Talking to the USB port is the easy part. There are very few webcams that are well supported under Linux. If you can get Logitech or Creative to tell you how to do it, more power to ya! But I seriously doubt they'll even give you the time of day. Read up on reverse engineering, you'll probably have to do some to get the camera working.
