A far better idea is to edit your boot.ini file to add a safe mode option....in fact, every PC I own I do two things at install
install the recovery console and add the safe mode option as well, then set the time out to five second.
So, mine looks like this:
[boot loader] timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional safemode" /safeboot:minimal /sos /bootlog
DO NOT JUST CUT AND PASTE MY BOOT.INI FILE...if our ARC config is different you will hose your system.
the above boot.ini file boots automatically to XP, and also offers the choice of recovery console or safe mode for five seconds (sometimes I use three seconds)
