You want to press F8 when it says "starting windows 98" - hit it repeatedly all through startup until the menu appears, and then it should be option 3 you want :-)

Safe mode will say so in each corner of the screen. if it's graphics right click desktop choose properties/settings and set colour to at least 16bit
