(Note that these instructions are for serial consoles only, if you're wondering why they don't work when you boot an Ubuntu CD normally.)

No, it means press (that is, press and release) Control+F, and then press 1-9 for F1-F9 or press 0 for F10. "F19" is a typo for "F9" - I think there's a bug about that.
