"Screen Printing" is too broad a subject. If you're preparing screens
for 4-color process, I doubt the decompose mode nor the CMYK plugin
will be adequate. I would let the person actually doing the printing
handle that. OTOH, if you're going to be making a file for printing
spot colors, I'd skip CMYK/RGB altogether and use channels - 1 per ink
There are tutorials on screen preparation out there - most focus on
photoshop, but you can do most of the same things in GIMP.
PS - maybe you can provide some more detals about what it is you're
trying to do?
