Another means of booting
Authored by: Monkey Angst on Jan 08, '03 06:17:37PM

Loved this hint, it helped me reclaim a Linux partition for OS X.

But it doesn't have to be that tricky to boot to CD from Single-user mode. If you have an AGP G4 or later, restart with Option held down, this will give you startup manager. Select the CD, then hit the arrow pointing to the right, and immediately hold down Cmd-S until you see text. (remember -- everything will take longer while booted to the CD)
