Cyberstorm PPC Boot Menu

I have heard you can enter a boot menu for the Cyberstorm......I held down the escape key while the machine was booting up,but nothing happened and it carried on booting into workbench....any ideas ?

Assuming that esc is the right key (it is for BPPC). Try tapping the esc repeatedly. Some Keyboards dont pickup the first few keypresses on reboot.

You have to hold down left and right mouse button at the same time you hold down ESC key.

No, just ESC is needed. And, only from cold boot IIRC. (You may need an updated flash first, my CSMK3 did...)

AFAIK, the CSPPC boot menu was not present on early firmware revisions. It wasnt on the default firmware for my CSMKIII too.
