The most distro-agnostic way would IMHO be 'which import || yum -y install ImageMagick && import -window root ~/screenshot_$$.png".

If it's not installed you can 'yum -y install gimp'.

There is no site like that I know of. Each tool comes with its own documentation which may or may not include examples.

Either set up networking (each host its own static IP address within the same subnet) and ping each host or check the Crossover cable pinouts (white orange plus white green swapped and orange plus green swapped).
