On my RH9 box, I go into the KDE menu, select graphics and then select screen capture program.

You can do one of two things.
You can set up a Print Screen button catcher to launch your screenshot program, or just be content with using said screenshot program.

I use KSnapshot, and it works like a charm, so I don't mind not being able to use the Print Screen button.

login as root
then you can choose whole screen or only one window.

* whole screen:

cd /
xwd -display 0.0 -root -out dump00.xwd

* ór one window:

1) before you select the actual window:
cd /
xwd -display 0.0 -frame -out dump00.xwd

2) selecting the window you want by pressing left mouse button on it

KDE's screen capture does the same thing when logged in as a user.

Fair enough - choice is what Linux is all about
