screen shots of boot loader screens

I know there's a way to do this, I've seen them in countless installation how-tos, but for the life of me I can't seem to make it work.

On my personal machine I have win xp pro & fedora 11-kde dual booted on my #1 320gb hdd. I have win 7 enterprise on the #2 320gb hdd. I am a networking student and am currently taking Linux Admin I, class.

For a class project on IT, I am trying to put together a ppt of how I accomplished setting up my machine and having slides of the grub loader screen, and the win 7 boot loader screen would be a nice addition. But I can not get it to work. Have tried using the shift & prt scr keys to make a copy & then pasting it into a text editor on linux or wordpad in windows, but it doesn't take.

How does one accomplish this task??

Thanks in advance for any & all suggestions.

Use a virtual machine. Then take the screen shots from the comfort of your Fedora install. For added flair, record it with gtk-recordmydesktop and embed it as a movie.
