    Ok here's the first real dumb question from the newish Mac owner
    ugh I know this is a stupid question but how do you make it eject a CD.......I went to install an application and it's in, but I can't figure out how to get the disc out......it's a Snow iMac 500Mhz G3 OS X 10.4.11.....TIA

    Some of the Mac keyboards have an eject key on the top right side.
    But you can always drag it to the trash. The trash can icon will change to an eject icon.
    Works for anything you want to eject, including Volumes, etc..
    When all else fails, try everything!
    The Rep System and you.
    Life's a joke...If you're not laughing, then you didn't get it.

    If all else fails, start up Disk Utility (in your Utilities folder) and eject from there. This has never failed me in cases where nothing else seemed to work.
