Dave and I managed to get a version of ZoneMinder up and running by grabbing a copy of the Blue Cherry Live CD from the BlueCherry.net web site and trying a number of different cameras. We discovered that one of the obstacles that we were facing involved the hardware (an older Dell box) that we were using as a platform. We ran into everything from not enough memory to realizing that the USB ports were only version 1.x. Dave had a very nice USB2 camera going, with the Live CD, going on his laptop. We ended up installing the Live CD (it's Ubuntu-based) to cure some of the memory issues.
