capturing video

I was wondering what options I have for capturing the video of my computer screen.  For the purpose of testing software I need a way to do this so user actions may be traced in detail.  The laptop to be used has an s-video output.  Will I need any additional software to correct the screen resolution etc.?

I like Hypercam From Hyperonics. I use it in our QA department when testing to record new additions to the software we produce.It is a great way to show people how to use the software and it produces an AVI that can play on just about anything. Theres a free trial
