    Maybe tell us the make and model of the cam software board. At this point, we don't know if it needs special drivers or not, and, considering the fact that it was running with Windows 98, this older board might not even have drivers available.
    One thing you can try:
    In a terminal, type:
    This command will list all devices attached to your pci bus. See if the board is on the list that lspci outputs. If you see it there, it means that Ubuntu sees the board, and may just need a driver to get it going.
