Is it the desktop or the bitmap you want? If it's the bitmap, it should
be on the machine. Some OS/2 bitmaps aren't compatible with Windows, but
many are.

For screen capture programs, a few minute's search should locate
several. I'm fond of PM Camera, myself. You might start by looking at
the nearest IBM support boards, which often are a good source of OS/2
shareware.

Hope these thoughts help.
