Installing Win XP

OK, so this is going to sound REALLY dumb, but here goes. Have searched every permutation I can think of for an answer to this, and found NOTHING!

Second or third screen on the baseline windows installer requires you to press f8 - How do I send the f8. Tried my Mac's keyboard, tried another USB keyboard from a PC... No joy!

Anyone able to give me a clue?

D'oh, now I knew I was being daft! It's always the bleeding obvious isn't it...

Doesn't explain why I couldn't find that info when I seached though. I seached f8, F8, function key, XP install keyboard, combinations of them...

Ah well, thanks a lot!
