What to press when installing Mac OS X Leopard using a non-Apple keyboard?
  

I forgot the password of my Mac OS Leopard so I'm planning to install a fresh copy of the OS. I use a non-Apple keyboard (a keyboard for Windows). I inserted the OS disk and I pressed and held the "C" key. But it didn't lead to the Mac OS Leopard installation screen. What is the problem? Maybe I need to press other keys for non-Apple keyboard? Please help. PS. my computer is an iMac G5.

Check the below tips on how to install mac os x leopard without using apple keyboard:
  • Boot from the HDD rather than USB.
  • Plug in your USB mouse (it won't let you continue without it)
  • When the keyboard setup begins, click the button with your mouse to proceed
  • Then tap "Z" on your keyboard
  • Followed by "/"
  • Follow through the setup instructions
  • You can ignore Apple ID registration
  • Do NOT transfer data from an existing account/computer
  • Create yourself a user account and you are ready to check the mac desktop at startup.
