I know the procedure with cisco pix firewalls (tftp server and so on) but how does this work with a aironet 1200?

i still checkt this document!
I have firmware 1.0.0 so i took the steps 1.0.1 or earlier!

So when i reboot teh ap and try pressing ESC when this message appears:
Type <esc> within 5 seconds for menu
It ignores me and continoues booting...dont know what to do!

But sometimes it notice my ESC press, but when i should choose a option like "C" or "1" it boots further..
