I want to get to disk utilities on my OSX disk. Long story.
I insert the cdrom
I shut down the computer
I restart computer
wait for startup tone
hold down shift key
wait for apple and spinning gear release shift key
COMPUTER BOOTS AS NORMAL AND DOES NOT OPEN SAFE MODE

What am I doing wrong here?


Thanks

Joe

To boot from the OS X Install CD/DVD, you hold down the C key (not the Shift key).
