Live Web to DV. How?

What is the best way to get a live web surfing demonstration at a seminar to DV? I will be shooting the other presenters and adding their PowerPoint slides in post, but one presenter wants to do a live demo. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Use a Scan converter to grab the VGA signal on it's way from the computer to the projecter. The Scan converter will output a video signal (probabaly COmposite and or S-video) that you can then record with a DV deck.

Thanks Mikko. Your suggestion is probably the best way to go. Is there any other way to record his power point presenation to .avi with software on his laptop? Or should I just buy/rent a scan converter?

Camtasia is a program that records the screen right off the computer. It loads on the computer being used. Do a search for it.
