Hello.  I have a MAC G4 with OS X Tiger.

I would like to boot to CD so I can load the OS on a replacement HDD.

I can not recall the correct key sequence.  It seems it was something like "COMMAND - C", but I can't recall.  Could someone, please, verify this for me?

Thank you,

    Hold down the 'c' key during the boot sequence.
