The Finder screenshots are generally ok -- just looking for fresh ideas.  The labels are a good suggestion (I don't normally use those).

The general flow of the presentation is...

    [type command] -> [look at output on console] -> [view resulting directory structure] 

And that sequence of slides is repeated several times.  I think `tree` fits nicely into the console-oriented theme.  But I'm not committed to it yet.

That reminds me, I also want to record console sessions as movies and play them back in the presentation.  I'm sure there is a shortcut key for that too.

Or can anyone recommend a screencast capturing tool that they like (I see lots of them on Google).
