I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but I doubt it will work. To
clarify what Alexander wrote, drivers for the 2.4 kernel will not work
on a 2.6-based system.

If you're installing a source based module, it needs to be rewritten for
2.6 (and then compiled on your system). If you're using a binary-only
module, you'll need it to be compiled for the kernel options you're
using. This basically means that you need one intended for FC3.

You mentioned the spca51x webcam driver. Google hasn't heard of this:
was it a misprint?
