    It depends I think, if you are using Windows XP, I think you have that option in the re-start, shutdown menu. If you are using Windows 98 as the previous person said, re-start your PC and hold F5 or F8 don't rememer which one exactly and choose safe mode when asked; hope this helped.
    PS. I use windows 98 and it says it is F8 but it also says that is some PCs is the Ctrl key, but try F8 first, good luck.

    I just kinda hit them all, as it depends on what the value is set to in MSDOS.SYS for WIN95 & WIN98 setups (don't rememeber where that is in the NT based systems which are NT4, NT5-Win2K, and NT5.1-WinXP).

    Was usually F5 for 95, Ctrl for 98, and F8 for the NTs, I think... but if it's not one of them, boot off the disk and start looking through the sys files. Should find it. Think the value is 'bootkey=' that you want to see.
