Powerbook G4 startup problem
I've sold my Powerbook G4 and tried to reinstall the old MacOSX disk so as to wipe/clean the powerbook and remove the users. Now the disk is stuck in there and the thing just won't start up at all. It stays on the grey screen with the apple logo and just does nothing! Can anyone help me please?

Have you tried holding down the mouse button immediately after you hit the power button to start it up?

Press it while either you restart the computer or start it up but don't let go of it.
You can also press the eject button the keyboard.

Hi Guys, I fixed it! Here's what I did for future reference...
"hold down the Command + Option + O + F keys while restarting and then typing in "eject cd" at the Open Firmware screen and then "mac-boot."
Thanks for your help.
