I assume this is within anaconda. Even so it's really off topic for
anaconda-DEVEL list.  This should be on fedora-ppc-list (at infradead)
or fedora-list.

You do the option key is equivalent, on my iBook it's even labeled with
alt. 

You may need to use fn to get at the function keys, is this in X or
before hand?  If it's in X you'd have to use Ctrl-Option like with
Ctrl-Alt in X.

Try option + fn + F3

I'll confirm on my iMac when I get in.
