Lou: Here is the modified command that you suggested: ffmpeg -f oss -s
640x480 -i /dev/dsp -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 /Desktop/out.avi
Lou: This is what the commands output returned:
Input #0, oss, from '/dev/dsp':
  Duration: N/A, start: 1327847392.312107, bitrate: N/A
    Stream #0.0: Audio: pcm_s16le, 44100 Hz, 1 channels, s16, 705 kb/s

Input #1, video4linux2, from '/dev/video0':

Could not open '/Desktop/out.avi'

So, I still have an unsolved issue with this old version.
