Hello, everyone. So I have this old Power Mac 3. I decided to boot it up again and use it, but when I boot it up, it either doesn't boot up or gives me a weird thing saying "open firmware please type Mac-boot to continue." Does anyone know how to start it up again?

When you come to where it tells you to type mac-boot, type "reset-nvram" without the quotes and press enter. If this doesn't fix the problem, next time try "reset-nvram" <enter> then "reset-all" <enter>.
