    You can use:

    -KSnapshot
    -the import command from ImageMagick
    -There are many others, just google.

    I use the import feature of ImageMagick but I hear that there's another program called Scrot (SCReenshOT) somewhere too.

    And by the way, please search the forums next time, as we just had a thread about this today.

    No, it's not the same thread: I want to know how to take screenshots of, say, OS install screens, etc, not from within an actual operating system.

    There's no one method that all Operating Systems use...

    You'll need a digital camera to do that.

    I think that I might have read somewhere that you can save a small program on a floppy/usb stick or something and run it from the floppy/usb stick. But, I'm not totally sure.
