My Macbook Pro is stuck on the bootup screen with the Apple - the little dial keeps going round and round - and it's been doing this for twenty minutes. This happened after I had to interrupt an update, which froze the whole computer. Is there a way to safe boot in a mac? If so - how?

I'm not able to locate my Leopard disks - either 10.4 or 10.5. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

Safe boot by holding the shift key on startup, until the spinning sign appears.
Note that safe boot will take a LONGER time, so be patient.
