My original question was:

I need to get some print screens from the Solaris 8 installation and i
don't know how to do it.
Does anybody know can i save this screens??

And the answers i received:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

They have a snapshot utility built into the GUI. 
Left click hold and slide over to Applications. 
Then slide down to snapshot. 
This will take a snapshot immage of either the screen, the window or a
region you define.
It will then open a window with a view of the captured area. 
The only problem may be you need to be printing to a postscript printer.
Hopefully you are.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

xwd(1). This will create an X window-dump format file. Use
xpr to turn this into postscript, or for somewhat fancier
output, if you have the pbm toolkit

xwdtopnm < file.xwd | ppmtopgm | pnmtops -rle | lp

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Try the Solaris 'snapshot' utility (/usr/openwin/bin/shapshot).
You can grap a portion of the screen, or a window, and then click
"View Image" to bring up the Image Viewer. From there you can save
it as a graphics file.

Or even better yet, get and install XV:

XV Quick Start at http://csep1.phy.ornl.gov/xv/xv.html

Home Page:  http://www.trilon.com/xv/

------------------------------------------------------------------------

try xv

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Initiate the jumpstart installation and, with the network configured,
use
/usr/openwin/bin/shapshot from other machine from network

or

try to find the screens in the docs.sun.com site
