Taking Screenshots of DOS games

Ok fellows, this is too useful a topic to be in off topic. I am trying to tae screenshots of DOS games. I know the "Print Screen" trick, but some games won't allow it to be copied to the clipboard. And if I "Alt-Enter" to cheat and take a screen of the frozen window, it comes up white, requesting I do ""Alt-Enter"" again.
What now? Is there another way, besides having to download a program? [I hate to clutter my HD and registry with installed programs. I like it lean and mean]

You can use the DOS program Screen Thief (little, good and won't fuck your HD or Windows registry). It's only 35 KB so I've attached it.

Some games won't work with Screenthief, in that case, you should try PCXDump and Videothief in addition.

Sceen Thief was fantastic... I remember saving automatic screenshots... so it was easy to get the *perfect* one!
