Your best bet for compatibility is a used Firewire 400 iSight. These are not hard to come by despite being long discontinued.

If you do not wish to get a used camera, most USB webcams work with OS X without explicitly saying it, but they may be few and far between. Try and find one that's advertised to work otherwise make sure it comes from a store with a solid return policy as insurance.

The Macally IceCam2 webcam works pretty well with my daughter's iBook G4 1.33Ghz under OSX 10.5.8. It's a USB 2.0 webcam so it won't work with Macs using the old USB 1.0 technology.

To use iChat (or any other video chating software), you need a FireWire 400 webcam (Preferably an Apple iSight) and a FireWire 400 port (Which your laptop should have). External USB webcams are not supported in Mac OS X.

Any webcam that is UVC (USB Video Compliant) should work. You will need to be using at least OS 10.4.9. Personally I use a Logitech, QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks, and it works fine. But be carefully, older versions of the Deluxe model do not support UVC. Look for a model that is VISTA compliant, that should also be UVC compiant. You may want to pick up a copy of iGlasses, the software will give you a lot of control over the webcam image.
