:cry: purchased g3 imac tray loading 333mhz which has os 8.6. when it boots up it's looking for a server and asking for a password? i found an url: http://www.themacobserver.com/tip/2003/06/16.1.shtml which seems to be telling me how to go about getting around this. however, when i hold down the command key (one with the apple on it?) and the s key (maybe this doesn't work for 8.6?) while it's coming on it just keeps on going to the same place and says "searching for the At Ease server volume... (can't find server on network.) and my choices are 1) pick server, 2)finder and three shut down. pick server and finder want a password. so after all that how do i get os 8.6 to boot into text-only mode? if i can get there then i can try to do what the above url suggests. stuck, any suggestions greatly appreciated.
