The creative webcam 5 works nicely. Not sure if it's still available though.
The logitech quickcam express (harris technology @ fyshwick) works ok - not
as nicely as the creative (colours seem out).

2.  I'm looking for VoIP software that uses SIP.  Should also support
> videoconferencing.

Two viable options at this point in time - wengophone and ekiga.
Wengophone is a bit flaky, but wengophone-ng looks promising (windows
versions also available if you want to recommend something to windows-locked

Ekiga seems to work ok on ubuntu dapper beta reasonably well.
