    So, the installation is stalled?

    If that's true, just press and hold the power button until the machine is turns off.

    Turn it back on, press and hold the trackpad button until the disc pops out. Inspect the disc for damage or scratches. Clean if necessary and retry the installation. If it continues to fail, you may need to replace the SuperDrive (or buy an external, USB drive) or replace the discs.

    Good luck!

    Confused here. You have removed the install disc, but you can't switch the Mac off? Or you can't get the installation screen to quit?

    What version of OSX is this? It sounds like Tiger that came with the Macbook. There was a 2nd CD and that needs to be inserted. I don't think there is a way around it. When you boot it will keep asking for the 2nd CD/DVD.
