Through googling, discover that Hyperterminal in NT & 2K is generally
incapable of sending the break signal required to prevent boot. Had
been trying for an hour, thanks for that....... (

So, it seems I need another terminal emulator, preferably a freebie
which is capable of issuing a Break command on a standard Compaq system
running W2K. It needs to be really simple please, I'm not up to
speed on this stuff at all.....

I use PuTTY which is currently free. Not sure if it'll do what you
need but given it's a free download there's no harm in trying it out.

Get it from:
