    I can't restart because it says it needs disk 2 for the installation and if I restart it will quit the installation.

    I think your installation is hosed anyway. If it's asking for disk 2, but the OS thinks disk 1 is still in use, something's up . . .

    FWIW, I also hate the way OSX controls this. Not having an eject button is just aesthetics. If the OS isn't clever enough to be able to get it right (and it's not, ejecting a stuck disk is a regular topic on these forums) they should let us do it ourselves.

    From Post 10 in this thread on another site comes this AppleScript:

    tell application "Finder"
    eject the disks
    end tell

    I'd recommend creating images of both discs, and then mounting them both simultaneously.

    The problem seems to be with the fact that crossover isn't telling OS X that the disc isn't in use.

    Btw, which game is it? I doubt you'll have much joy running it using crossover if it's anything relatively modern.

    I'd recommend using Sim City 4 native or in bootcamp. As on a big city on my intel imac, it is a tinsey bit jumpy.
