I don't know what version of mac system you're using, but I have done COLOR 
screen captures in a Mac IIsi amd Mac IIci running system7 with no trouble at
all.  I believe the key sequence is Command-Shift-3.  As for capturing the 
whole screen, so waht?  Just load the image into a good paint editor and cut
out the section that you want.
