safe boot mode in os 8.1

Post by zeitguy » November 24th, 2008, 10:10 am

I am running 8.1 on a G3, and after getting it back up and working on the networking a bit, it has suddenly started an infinite cycle on boot up, and I cna't remember how to do the no-extension boot.

Is there a list of keys to press and their effect on boot? Thanks for any help.

Hold down shift immediately after the startup chime and continue to do so until you see "Extensions Disabled."
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.
