Glad to hear that you are having a GREAT experience. My dad works for Apple...Back in june he sent me an iBook G3 to use. I had always heard bad stories about Macs, but after using the iBook with Panther I was sold. I have since bought an orginal Airport,an iBook clamshell and I am currently working on a deal for a 17" 1.33mhz Powerbook. My dad has told me that he was not trying to convert me, he just wanted me to have a computer to use. I had to tell him I was addicted and it was his fault!!!! Anyway, sorry for the Novel. lol You'll learn something new everyday!

I put a Cd in the PB , it had some MP3,s on it
The Cd wont run and I cant find an eject key

I believe the F12 key ejects cd's, atleast on a ibook. The farthest upper right hand key!

Click the blue apple in upper left corner, click system prefs, click cd's-dvd's. This will let you select what you want to do with those types of media. Hope this helps. If you have the powerbook open itunes when you insert a music cd, then in itunes prefs you can select what you want itunes to do with it.

Now you just have to change your profile from "soon to be switcher".
