    Well since Mac is designed to be on or asleep essentially all the time, start ups should be rare enough to make selection of start up items somewhat unimportant

    If you hold down Apple + S it will bring you into Single User Mode....basically a unix shell

    Holding down C will boot from the CD drive. There are more but I can't remember them off the top of my head
