|I have a B&W G3 with a SCSI CD-Burner that can boot a Mac OS X CD, but it does not recognize the Gentoo CD as a possible boot device in startup disks. I tried the CD on a Bondi Blue iMac and it worked great.
Holding down 'C' just causes it to try for a bit before booting into OS X.
I've also tried going into open-firmware and doing: "boot cd:,\\:tbxi" that I saw on another post, but that didn't work (wasn't sure if it was for 1.4 only)
Also holding down ALT gave me the ol' ? and then it booted into OS X.
Anything else to try?
