Worked out-of-the-box in Fedora 9. Didn't need to change a single OS setting, simply changed the Skype configuration to point to the new headset.
All hail Linux

First I want to say, that my ClearChat PC Wireless works fine with my Windows XP.
Ubuntu 8.04 recognises the headset and the volume Control works (I can see it on the screen) but there is no sound on my Headset but only on the PC speakers. What am I doing wrong???

The headset worked straight out of the box for me. For those commenting that the sound is coming from the wrong device, remember to set the desired audio device in the applications you use.
Microsoft Windows, for better or worse, always assumes that the user wants the newly plugged in USB audio device to become default. Linux doesn't... but you can easily set the default device via the ~/.asoundrc config file in your home directory, or system-wide in /etc/asound.conf.
Open up a terminal, and have a squiz at /proc/asound/cards. This lists what sound cards are on the system:
stuartl@beast ~ $ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [AudioPCI ]: ENS1371 - Ensoniq AudioPCI
Ensoniq AudioPCI ENS1371 at 0x8800, irq 19
1 [Headset ]: USB-Audio - Logitech Wireless Headset
Logitech Logitech Wireless Headset at usb-0000:00:04.3-1, full speed
Note the 1 beside the headset entry. I use the following in my ~/.asoundrc to select this device as the default:
If the device was some other index... change the card entry to 2 or whatever the number is. This should make the headset the default device for all ALSA applications.
For OSS, one must fiddle with symlinks and /dev/dsp (as root).
