How do I take a screenshot on my HTC Desire S?

Is it possible to take an iOS style screenshot with my HTC Desire S? Do I need a special app?

You need root access. Some screnshot apps in the Market claim they "work with some new Android phones without root access" - I tried them ALL on a Sony Ericsson Arc and a Samsung Galaxy SII. None of them worked without rooting the phone first.
Once rooted, you can install something like ShootMe or one of the other apps. Some custom ROMs have the iPhone-like home-/powerbutton combo integrated...
