I don't personally own a netbook with a webcam, but I know dell have a habit of disabling things in their bios. 

Failing that, is there or have you, tried any other webcam software?

Yes, I'll try that.  I think I can find a USB version of the netbook
remix live CD - I must have one somewhere ....  If not, Ill make one.
Should have thought of that.
