    Try to quit the program that you are running with a CD

    boot it to open firmware by holding apple, option, o, and f when you turn it on

    wait for open firmware to load

    type "eject cd" without the quotes - it should pop out

    then type mac-boot

    :big grin:


    edit: don't fuck with anything else in here.
