    Manual eject?
    One more question.... Is there any way to get a disk out of an ibook G4(2004) when the computer wont turn on? I am driving myself nuts here. Thanks for your help.

    Right after you press the power button, hold down the mouse button till the CD Ejects.

    Restart the computer while holding down Command (Apple) + Alt + O + F. A command prompt type thing will come up, type eject cd. The cd will pop out, then type mac-boot and the computer will boot up.

    Thanks, but....
    That didnt work either. The problem is that when I turn the computer on, it shows signs of life for about 30 seconds, and then nothing happens. I am hoping that if I can get this DVD out and load my install disk, i will be able to boot. Is the any truely manual way to get the disk out?
