Cocktail settings, Disk Warrior, DVD boot, etc.

* Cocktail settings:

* Use Disk Warrior to start Mac from DVD, not the install disks. The install disks work only when you are still using the original OSX.

* To eject a DVD: press the Mouse button while rebooting

* To boot from DVD: after inserting the DVD, restart while pressing the “C” button. Release the button when the Mac apple icon appears

* To safe-boot: Keep the Shift key pressed until the Mac apple icon appears
