Help! Can't get a DVD out of my dead G4 iBook..

My iBook G4 is dead (can't turn it on, get power, anything - RIP, iBook) and I've already ordered a new MacBook. However, a CD is stuck in the disk drive and I can't get it out...Any ideas on how to manually do this?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Is there a tiny hole near the drive? If there is, you can straighten a paper clip and insert it into the hole to open the drive door and eject the disk. That's how it works on my old G3 iBook but I'm not sure if newer iBooks have the eject hole. Look and see if you find a very small hole somewhere on the iBook and try the old straightened paper clip trick.
