If you are a long-time Mac user, you'll remember that to eject a floppy at boot, you just held the mouse button down until it popped out. I just got my iMac DVD SE and was thinking how annoying it is that I can't push a button to eject the CD/DVD on rebooting (there is no button like the CD-ROM drives have). Thinking back to the good ol' days, I held the mouse button down at boot and I'll be darned if the CD/DVD disks don't eject!

That's the best way to do it, but there is a button. Look closely on he right side of the felt in the slot. There's a tiny hole. Put the straightened end of a paper-clip in there and push *gently* (it's a small electronic button, not a mechanical mechanism). That's only if all else fails!
