Webcam not getting detected on BeagleBoard

I have installed Maverick on a 8 GB SD card and i am using it on
Beagle Board. But when i attach the webcam to it, it fails to
recognize it. I have tried using Cheese too, but it doesn't work
either, i mean it fails to open the webcam to capture any images. I am
using a Logitech quick-cam. i tried other webcams too, but the problem
remains the same.

Please help me with this problem. if there is any tutorial or any way
to fix the problem, plz help.

Thanks a lot..
