I need a good FREEWARE program that will allow me to take screenshots of another computer on the network.

No other remote functionality is required, just screenshots!

If anyone knows of anything then please help - links if possible.

Remote computer is running Win98, PC that will do the monitoring is Windows XP.

Hope I'm not asking for the world.

Thanks in advance

I use www.tightvnc.com
It is slightly modified version of AT&T vnc software. It is free works well and you can do a lot more than you need infact.
It works well over slower networks like ISDN or other dialups.

Above someone said to use tightvnc.  It’s a good program indeed.
I have to put in my input and recommend using Real VNC:  http://www.realvnc.com/
I have been using the new beta version (4).  It’s good software and has new features to change your port settings.

Best part is that even if your client pc’s didn’t have the client software of vnc (tight or real) they just need a web browser that has java (Micro$ofts or Sun).
