Question with screen capture!

How do you take a snapshot of your screen while a movie is playing? I used KDE3's ksnapshot while an AVI file was playing on XINE to get a screen capture but the movie just comes out blue on the picture. I also tried the 'import' command but it said 'command not found.'

By the way, it's my first linux installation and I'm enjoying all the tinkering so far I'm using RedHat 7.3.
