Thank you all. I bought a Samsung Digital camera (so I could tape our baby once she gets here!
I'm a little computer savy, but was not aware about the whole firewire 1394 thing going on, so when I bought the camera I bought 4-6pin cable for around $10 bucks, thinking I could just plug it into my USB port..
Sounds like I have something to buy and do this weekend. Also thank you for the links, I believe they will come in real handy!--
