Need to know how to boot Windows 7 into safe mode. Is this the same as all the other versions since Win95 - by hitting the F8 key during boot, or is the ONLY way into safemode by MSConfig and choosing the startup option of safe boot?

No other issues.

You're welcome.   Microsoft has documented the effect of pressing F8 before Windows starts on the Advanced startup options (including safe mode) web page.  I hope that will convince the doubters!  It describes these options:

   Repair Your Computer
   Safe Mode
   Safe Mode with Networking
   Safe Mode with Command Prompt
   Enable Boot Logging
   Enable low-resolution video (640x480)
   Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
   Directly Services Restore Mode
   Debugging Mode
   Disable automatic restart on system failure
   Disable Driver Signature Enforcement

   Start Windows Normally
