Thanks to everyone for replying. It turns out that it's necessary to select
the System Recover menu first (F11). Then you can highlight the OS and F8
brings up the usual options including safe mode. I don't know if this is
the norm for HP's running Vista, but in any case I was able to get in and
copy the user's data.
