I used a camera. It is more work, because I edited the image files to
crop them and reduce the number of colors, this way the files were
quite small. See http://www.taleman.fi/ESKK/x128.html

I learned that the camera should be on a tripod or you gotta learn how
the autofocus works on your camera.

I quess you can use a serial console, if you have another computer
where you can get screenshots of the terminal window. WMWare or some
other meta-os works also, I believe this is the way most istallation
images in books are taken.
