OS/2 startup options

Looking for the equivalent of the Windows F5 and F8 startup features in OS/2? I didn't think so...

Here they are anyway:

When white box and OS/2 name appear at start up press:
ALT - F1 for a recovery menu
ALT - F2 for a driver by driver blow by blow

At the recovery menu:
ESC to coninue normally
F2 for command line
F3 for fixing your graphics
F4 for a safemode type desktop
F5 for hardware detection
F6 for no hardware detection
0...3 for restore point type functions

During boot when the screen becomes a solid color:
CTRL-SHIFT-F1 to stop reloading the previous applications
