Isn't it apple option O and F while booting? I have a windows keyboard hooked up I held down windows alt O and F and it doesn't seem to want to boot to it. Should I hold down the buttons sooner?

Does it matter if I'm using the left or the right windows key?

Which key ejects a cd on a windows keyboard? I remeber it being an f something key.

Geez, it does matter I held the other one and it booted into open firmware.

I typed eject cd and pushed enter. It says eject cd disk-label: read of block0 failed can't open the eject device, what does that mean?

Is there a way to phyically get the cd out of the slot loading drive in an imac g3? :)
