You can change PIF settings to save the contents of the text screen.  It is
in the Advanced section, under Display Options:  Monitor Ports.  Check the
text mode box.  I recommend reading the help about it too, because it
mentions something that sounds exactly like this person's problem.  As far
as distributing, just distribute the PIF along with the program!
