Taking screenshots during installation

Hello,

I have seen many Windows installation tutorials online that have screenshots of the installation process. I was wondering how it is possible to take screenshots like these during the OS installation.

Digital camera?

Thanks!

Hello skypc.



It's done using a Virtual Machine like Sun VB or MS Windows Virtual PC.
