I think it varies bios to bios.

Isn't that what the pause button is for? Switch on the computer, at the 
first beep hit the pause button. Now the computer will wait for you and 
the CD/DVD drive will respond. Open the drawer, put in the CD from which 
you wish to boot and then press the enter key. The computer will now 
continue and will boot from the CD.

Or have I got it all wrong?
