Any recommendations on software to help me use my camcorder with my PC?

Detailed Question:

I just bought a new DV camcorder and was noticing that it has a Firewire connector. Is there a good way to use this with my computer? The computer has a Firewire port but just plugging in the camcorder doesn't do much. I guess I was wondering if there's a way to just use the camcorder as if it were a webcam and kill two birds with one stone.
