    Installing OS 8.5 on Power Mac G3
    I managed to purchase OS 8.5 from a friend, but I am not sure how to change the boot sequence to boot from a CD. Does anyone know if the Power Mac G3 has a BIOS configuration similar to a Windows machine? If so, how do I access it? i.e. what keyboard cmmands do I use?

    Your thinking too Windows here. Insert the CD, start the machine, hold down the C key. The Mac should boot from the CD.
