Invoking SETUP on a Toshiba Satellite A25-S2792 Laptop

I have a Toshiba Satellite A25-S2792 Laptop which I am trying to set the boot sequence on, so that I can boot from CD. Most systems you press F2 on boot to invoke Setup, but this one just freezes on the Toshiba splash screen if you you try F2. Is there some special process to invoke Setup? Thanks in advance.

    Try this -

    Toshiba Notebook [Newer models]:

        * Turn on computer by Holding down power button while pressing the ESC key.

    The machine will beep, then display:
    Check System, then press [F1] key.

        * Release ESC key
        * Press F1 key

    Wow! This worked perfectly as described. I never would have guessed such a procedure! I'll write this down in my notebook. Found the BIOS to be quite limited in Boot sequence, but thats another issue.
