If you rely on this frequently, you may want to redefine the default key for selecting the Location Manager location at startup from Control to something else. Open Firmware is a cross-platform firmware standard for controlling hardware that all PCI-based Macs use. It's mostly of interest to hardware developers, but it can be a fun way to freak out a new user who's not expecting to see a command line on the Mac.
To exit Open Firmware and continue booting, type "mac-boot" or "bye" depending on Macintosh model and press Return. Although Apple has moved away from relatively frivolous "Easter Eggs" connected with startup modifiers, there are a few available for old Macintosh models.

I have an anicent PowerMac As some of you may know its about as pickey as you can get! I refuses to boot from the MacOS 9. It boots fine from a 7. I also cannot install 9. The only way I can see this being done now is to make a 9. How would I create one of these?
Thanks in advance. Are you using an actual Mac OS 9. If so, those might not work.
You would need the retail version. I've also heard it mentioned that Mac OS 9. Plus, 8. Its a full version and not a bundle copy.
