MULTI WEBCAM HELP! TECHIES ONLY!?

Kevin Asked: MULTI WEBCAM HELP! TECHIES ONLY!?

I want to put some low budget cameras around my house. A friend of mine gave me a couple of old webcams that they dont need, and I wanted to connect them all to one computer. I thought that maybe if I just put them somewhere weather proof, add some usb extentions, and have a multiport usb hub on my computer, would I be able to just access them through a program already in my pc or would i have to download soemthing to see them simultaneously? If so, which program should I use? Once again, i DONT need help choosing which camera or how to connect them, just need to know how to see all of them through my vista (ya, i know, it sucks, im just too lazy to reformat).

If, on that same computer, i want to be able to use my own, separate webcam, should i just plug it in the same hub, and see if theres a way to change between the 3-4 camera, or just plug it into another port in my computer?

PLEASE, only answer if you know exactly what to do and can tell me step by step.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
