I've found a few references to hardware mjpeg in the mailing list archive
& the CVS sources, but I am not quite sure yet how stable / unstable this
is? What cards would be suppported? How to use & enable it, did I miss
some documentation?

Using my Iomega Buz card I would hope I could reuse my old P3-733 instead
of spending lots of money on new hardware.

Thank you in advance,
