Can a pawn capture any piece en passant, or only other pawns?

only other pawns, and only on the move directly after a double pawn move.

If you have some spare time try reading the official fide chess rules at http://www.fide.com/official/handbook.asp?level=EE101 Article 3.7 gives the rules for pawn movement & capture, with diagrams.
