I don't think I'm registered at the SAS forums (don't have them bookmarked, anyway), so this may have already brought up there (or possibly even here, I didn't search). The BootSafe app which accompanies SAS (has to be run separately, there's no way to get it from within SAS) is a handy way to save a few steps when you want to reboot into safe mode, particularly in eliminating the need to hit F8 at just the right time. One thing to watch for, and while this is mentioned in the main SAS help files it's not shown anywhere in the BootSafe interface. When you're ready to reboot back into normal mode, you must run BootSafe again first, otherwise it'll just boot back into safe mode. Presumably it works by altering and saving the Win boot configuration file(s).
