CTAN has a new package: chessboard
This package offers commands to print chessboards. It can print partial boards, hide pieces and fields, color the boards and put various marks on the board. It has a lot of options to place pieces on the board. Using exotic pieces e.g. for fairy chess is possible. It can be used together with the skak package which you can find at http://sourceforge.net/projects/latex-skak/. REQUIREMENTS chessboard uses some primitives of e\TeX. It needs a recent version of chessfss and xkeyval. It also needs the packages pgfcore and pgfbaseshapes (from the pgf bundle), and pst-node (from pstricks).
