    shift+command+3 takes full-screen shots
    shift+command+4 gives you crosshairs and lets you take partials.

    For the entire list, check out the handy Macrumors Guide

    Edit: Oh, yeah, looks who's quick on the draw :)

    For the whole screen, press Apple-Shift-3 – if you press Apple-Shift-4 this will turn your cursor into a set of crosshairs you can use to select a certain area of the screen rather than the whole lot.

    To clarify, the "Apple" and "Command" keys are the same keys (it's technically called the Command key).

    Some old-timers also will refer to it as "Flower" as in...

    Flower+Shift+3
    Apple+Shift+3
    Command+Shift+3

    ...all the same thing...
