FSC desn't officially support Linux. Therefore they do not provide any drivers for it.
But it's the same webcam like in most other notebooks. For example all those little netbooks seem to use this webcam and there are some forums that deal with making linux work on them.
Which slackware version and which kernel do you run?

This is a thread about slackware on a MSI Wind and it seems like user CWang got the webcam working - somehow:

If I have time within the next weeks I will try to make the same webcam work in my Asus EEE 901 with Slax. Maybe we can share some experiences.
