Using an external webcam

I have a MacBook Pro with a webcam integrated in the lid. I want to use an external webcam (via USB) and to over-ride the inbuilt one. Is this possible...and how? Thanks for any suggestions

I am guessing here, but i bet there is an option in the BIOS to turn it off, much like a wifi built in to laptops.

click here gives one way to disable the cam, bit not sure it will do what you want.
