    I got a Mac Mini from a friend the other day to use as my new primary computer (replacing a 17" G4 PowerBook, seven years old and still works great!). It came with its HD wiped, so you'd turn it on and get a grey screen with a blinking file folder. No prob - figured I'd pop in my 10.4 install disc and sit back and wait for 10.6 to be released...

    Oops! The 10.4 disc was for IBM CPU's, not Intel's. No prob, a quick trip to my local software store can get me up and running, but it seems I can't eject the disc. I've tried holding down the eject key during boot up to no avail. Any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance!
