    Stuff plugged into the MB can be identified (including what kernel module is driving it) by typing in a terminal

    lspci -nnk

    USB/FW hardware can be identified with

    lsusb

    ... if you need excruciating detail for your USB stuff

    sudo lsusb -v

    Is this a laptop? Even a built-in camera is usually hardwired through a USB or FireWire chipset to simplify driver writing. The commands I gave you above will list all the hardware that plugs in (or goes through such an interface chipset); even unknown hardware will be listed as such with a vendor ID you can use to find out exactly what it is and what you'd need to make it work.
