He is talking about the latest kernel. "uname -r" will tell you what version 
you are currently running. If it isn't the latest, do a "yum update", reboot, 
and then try your webcam again.

That said, I am not sure it will work. Use lspci and/or lsusb to find some 
details about your webcam. Do you have a /dev/video entry in /dev? Or 
/dev/video0 or something similar? If you do, it is likely that your webcam is 
recognized and the proper driver is already in place.

HTH, :-)
