Hello friends, here I am again: I want to join Skype, but my computer does not have a webcam. Is there anyway that I can have one installed in my pc? Thank you,

Go to WalMart, or electronics store of your choice, and buy a webcam. The box will include installation software. You'll be video camming before you know it.

You might do some online shopping to review cam features and PC requirements before making that purchase.

Exactly what tofurkey said. Go to any electronics store and pick up a Logitech webcam. Everything including instructions will be included in the box.

Since I do not know much about computers or webcams for that matter, what cam do you suggest I buy? I have a Gateway/Windows Home Premium/Intel Pentium 3.20Ghz, with 1GB of memory. Please check the cams below. Thank you,

Depends on how much you want to spend but for Skyping, the Logitech C260 (or any larger number) is quite suitable. This provides ample pixels for a good picture but is fairly basic. I go t this one at WalMart.
