    cd won't eject
    I have a powerbook G4, and it apparently has a disc stuck in the drive. There is no icon for the disc anywhere that I have looked. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    shut it down, hold down the mouse while starting up, if you have no external mouse, hold down the left click button on the powerbook

    You can also use the umount command in the terminal:
    umount - unmount filesystems

    SYNOPSIS
    umount [-fv] special | node
    umount -a | -A [-fv] [-h host] [-t type]

    DESCRIPTION
    The umount command calls the unmount(2) system call to remove a special
    device or the remote node (rhost:path) from the filesystem tree at the
    point node. If either special or node are not provided, the appropriate
    information is taken from the fstab(5) file.

    The options are as follows:

    -a All the filesystems described in fstab(5) are unmounted.

    -A All the currently mounted filesystems except the root are
    unmounted.

    -f The filesystem is forcibly unmounted. Active special devices type 'man umount' (no ' ' ) in terminal for more
