The "snag keys" work best on a directly-connected wired keyboard. Some Hubs come up too late for the keys to be seen.
The simplest is the Option key. it draws a blank screen, then puts up an Icon for each potential bootable Volume it finds.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

Do you have ATI 5770? Do you have 10.6.3+ DVD (they are DVDs, CDs have not been used since 2004)
What model Mac Pro? 4,1? 5 ,1?
You should have more than one boot drive handy - clone the system, spare drives, etc.
Try formatting another drive and pull the current drive.

Yes I have the ATI 5770. I do not have any higher versions of Snow Leopard. I have the family pack of OS X 10.6. Since I have multiple macs.
I have Leopard, Snow Leopard Install DVD's
I can't even format drives...
