ksnapshot will do exactly that. Try it out. Run ksnapshot and take a look at your choices in the Capture Mode drop down box. The below snapshot was taken with ksnapshot in "Region" mode. As you can see, it is a snapshot of just the edit box for this forum. There's also a Help button at the bottom of the ksnapshot window.
As for the .jpeg part, if you're running KDE, you can right-click on almost any image file in Konqueror, and choose Actions -> Convert To -> jpeg, png, gif, tiff... or you could open the image in The GIMP and save as .jpeg. Each time you save a screenshot, ksnapshot will increment the filename (screenshot1, screenshot2, etc.) for you before saving.
All of this can be done with apps that are included on the FC3 install disks.
