I have 
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:c215 Logitech, Inc.

which is nearly the same on a SuSE machine. I used the following to get
it to work:
Downloaded gspcav1-20070508.tar.gz (spca5xx) from

# tar zxvf gspcav1-20070508.tar.gz
# cd gspcav1-20070508
# make
# make install

That seems to work. Now

# modprobe gspca

I could try the same method on Feisty if you find this doesn't work.
