I bought a D-Link DCS-900W which is a wireless (802.11b) cam.  It
also has a 100mb ethernet port on it.  It's pretty slick - runs
a web server so its standalone.  I bought one for my Dad who
uses it under Windows.  My co-worker has (4) DCS-900W's and is
using Zoneminder under Fedora.  Like the windows s/w, it has
motion detection capability so it records motion.  At your
leisure, you can hit a web page on the box running Zoneminder and
it shows "events" it recorded - timestamped of course.  Really slick.
The picture quality is acceptable.  I wonder if Zoneminder will compile
under OpenBSD...
