To start with, I suggest using F16. With new, up to date packages and a more up to date kernel, webcam support has improved a lot since F14.

If cheese is seeing your webcam, it's working properly. I don't know why firefox etc aren't seeing it. For skype, you may need to modify some video configurations etc.
