Question Is there any way to produce screenshots?

I was wondering if there is a way to produce screenshots in Linux? The particular distro will be Frugalware 0.7. I'm even looking for a way to screenshot the boot process, as well. In other words, I want to make screenshots at certain points in the install and while it is installed,as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

if you truly want to take screenshots during the actual are better off to run the install in an emulator or other such tool.....I prefer vitualbox....then I can use my host snapshot app called ksnapshot which is a KDE app.

however they already exist here

So, I can pretty much stay in the distro of my choice and not install it on another partition / drive, etc.?

Also, the problem I may see with this is that when you use an emulator, can you give it all your memory? For instance,
right now I have 1 GB of memory, but isn't the rest of that going to be used by the distro of my choice?

In Qemu you can specify how much memory to give. There are better emus around though and I would expect you can do the same with them. You wouldn't want to give all your memory though or your system will slow to a halt.
