your keyboard has one.... "Prt Scr" up above Insert, Home, Page up....

Just get your screen shot ready then press Prt Scr then open your image editing software, and paste the screenshot (ctrl V)...

You can bind the key to Ksnapshot quite easily with KDE 3.2, which seems to be the default for Mandrake 10.

Here's a screenshot of the menu to follow to get the keys bound.
