Problem creating animated gif

I am using from PIL v1.1.5 on python 2.4.1.

import ImageGrab, gifmaker

seq = []

while keepOnGoing:
    im = ImageGrab.grab()

fp = open("out.gif", "wb")
gifmaker.makedelta(fp, seq)


however I am getting this error:

Exception in thread Thread-3:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\Python24\lib\", line 442, in __bootstrap
  File "c:\", line 10, in run
    gifmaker.makedelta(fp, seq)
  File "c:\", line 79, in makedelta
    for s in getheader(im) + getdata(im):
  File "c:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\PIL\", line 383,
in getdata
    ImageFile._save(im, fp, [("gif", (0,0)+im.size, 0,
KeyError: 'RGB'

Any ideas?  Basically I want to make an animated GIF out of a bunch of
images taken using the ImageGrab module.
