Thumbs up

Make a screen shot of the webpage you are viewing. Then use a graphic editing software like the Gimp and save it as .PNG format. When you're done, go to the Gnome Control Panel. You should be able to set the background from there.

Look, I don't want only a screenshoot of the web page, I'm talking about set a web document with its links, flash animations and all those its stuff, like you're able to do in Guindows....

Somebody know??????

Try putting it into the directory /usr/share/backgrounds/images/
You might have to be root
Than Start->Preferences->Background
Choose the new background

Ofcouse you should have flash 6 installed.
