    Yeah, a member here and I are trading my Mac Mini for his Powerbook 17". The Powerbook is here and perfect, so my wife and I are happy, and he will be getting my Mac Mini Intel. So, I booted the Mac OS X DVD's for the Mini, and went to erase the disk. It just says "Unmounting disk", forever. Does it normally take long, or should I quit? If I do, it says it could mess up the HD, and I don't want to send the guy a Mini with a messed up hard drive.

    So when should it stop saying "Unmounting disk" ?

    Something's wrong. Since you're reformatting the drive anyway, I'd pull the power and start again. Boot from the discs, erase your hard drive and reformat it. :)
