Thanks for the input Clive, for some reason that key combination isn't
working for me either. Maybe something is wrong with my setup.
Currently, I have the standard mac keyboard plugged in to the computer
with a serial connection to my windows box to view openfirmware
output. It was what I remebered from the first time I did the setup
on this machine. Also, to further assist anyone who might donate some
time to this, I have the first few lines of output from the Mac when
it boots :
read stage 2 blocks: 01234567. done!
starting stage 2...

Cannot use bootpath
Using boot-device instead

I hit all key combos right as the chime sounds, and tried the
cmd+opt+p+r before the chime. <sigh> Anyways, thanks for the advice
and have a great day.
