If you run Linux (or maybe some other unices), try this quick 'n dirty

For grabbing the whole screen:
xwd -root | xwdtopnm 2> /dev/null | pnmtopng 2> /dev/null >
/home/buffalo/graphics/screenshots/screen_`date +%Y%m%d%H%M_%S`.png

For grabbing a window (it'll give you a crosshair):
xwd | xwdtopnm 2> /dev/null | pnmtopng 2> /dev/null >
/home/buffalo/graphics/screenshots/screen_`date +%Y%m%d%H%M_%S`.png

0. Make sure you have the 'netpbm' package installed
1. Copy line (above) into its own file
2. chmod 755 filename
3. place it in your ~/bin folder or a global bin folder
4. make sure you have a directory called ~/graphics/screenshots
5. map both files to a keyboard shortcut via your window manager
