I seem to recall that there is a way to modify the bios selection on some older G4 stuff.. an open firmware kind of thing… For the life of me I can’t recall the details.

I burned two DVDs, one with Lubuntu and the other with MorphOS, both for 
PowerPC. The computer currently boots to Debian as configured by the 
previous owner. It says to press 'c' to boot from the CD/DVD drive, but 
it seems to ignore the keypress and boots to Debian regardless. 
(Keyboard works fine; I can type at the login even though I don't have 
the credentials.) Is there some other way to force it to boot from the DVD?
