    Somehow, my machine at work was set to network startup, which goes NOWHERE. So, the machine just sits there, blinking a little globe. All this has happene after I put classic on my machine, but I have no way of getting out of this option and booting into OS X. How to I cancel or boot from a cd? I have already tried C and X key commands.

    What sort of machine is it. Generally speaking, if it can't find the network boot then it should revert back to the internal drive by default, meaning startup will tae slightly longer but will still get you into OSX eventually.

    Irrespective, you should be able to boot from the CD/DVD by inserting it and pressing C as you start up. :)
