Does anyone what key to hold down when you open the memory control panel that displays the checkbox for disabling the memory check at startup?

My powerbook has 256MB of ram and I think I could save a few seconds by eliminating the memory check.

I know there used to be an option for this in OS8, but I couldn't find it in OS9.

Thanks

Try holding down both the option and open apple key while opening the memory control panel. This worked for me in OS 9.0.4.

Cheers!

Thanks! That worked! It seems to boot a litle faster now.

Afterall, if there isn't a problem 99.99% of the time, why should I spend that time checking it?

Thanks again.

But chances are the problem won't occur until you're not checking for it...
Hell, I got a virus the day after I decided to delete all my antivirus stuff.
