Default Choose startup disc ---at startup????

Hi,

This is more of a Mac question than a PT one. I recently found that if I held down the X key on bootup, my ibook would boot up in OS X. But I can't find the key that makes it boot up in OS 9 .I would like to have the choice of which system I am using when I actually boot up, rather than before.

Anyone have any ideas?

I tried the option key, but it only lets you choose one system off one disc. I have ox x and 9.2 on the same disc....any ideas?

IF the x key gives you os x, there must be another key....
