Using Web cam as a security camera

  Toad_7787 14:23 06 May 2003

I have a PIII 500 running Win98se and have recently got broadband from NTL.
I heard that you can use your webcam as a security camera so you can keep an eye on your house from any other computer.
I have no idea how to do this - can anyone tell me where i can find an idiots guide to setting this up, and if there is more than one way of doing it, what the options are?

(My Webcam is an Intel Create and Share model and is about four years old, as is my computer.)

Thanks for those but not quite what I had in mind.
I really wanted to know if I'm able to use my existing kit to monitor my home rather than spend £300 on new stuff.
