You only have to hold the C key down until it identifies the CD (used to be 
a happy mac, I don't know what recent machines have). Then the shift key
before it starts the MacOS splash screen. 

It's surprising it's loading things like Quicktime off the CD. 

Another key combination, this would be for your hard disk installations, to 
force a fsck kind of thing called rebuilding the desktop, hold the Option and 
Command keys together as it's finishing up the parade of icons and starting
up the desktop.
