I'm trying the gallery2 software and it does have support built in for
webcams. I don't use it so I cannot attest to its effectiveness. G2 is in
Beta if that matters, so they are recommending that it not be used on
production servers. The last CVS I pulled has been pretty stable for me

Well, you may be able to shoehorn something like Gallery or coppermine into
doing what you want. These are fairly complex photo gallery packages. I
use gallery at http://gallery.dragonstrider.com.
