Can the Olympus C-4040 be used as a webcam?

I heard it is possible, but I don't know how to do it. Please help.

I also don't have the software disk for the camera, if this is necessary. ( Is it possible to DL this anywheres?)

No, not that you'd want to!

As you use the camera the CCD heats up, and over time can cause hot pixels that appear in your regular photos. Do you really want to ruin your good camera doing a job that a $15 webcam can do?
