Can someone help me to learn the commands I need to type in at the terminal in order to install OSX from the terminal. My PowerMac G4 will not boot to the DVD install disk by pressing the "C" key at boot however I am able to boot to the firmware and am able to type in commands at the promt. I want to tell to system to boot to the install DVD. I tried changing the DVD drive out but it made no difference. The Drive does not seem to be the problem. I'm replacing the hard drive with a new one and the old hard drive and original keyboard are both missing. I read somewhere that all the mac keyboards are not compatible which may explain why holding the C key does not work.
