If you're using X Windows, you should have a program called snapshot,
which allows you to capture windows, portions of windows, or your entire
screen to xwd files. (If you're using Frame, of course, you can use its
built-in screen capture utility.)

You can then use xv to convert the files to gif format for use on a PC.
At least I think you can...it's been a while since I used xv.

Good luck,
Steve
