    I just always (well not always) wondered, you know how on the that REV of the PowerMac G4, I think they called it the Mirror Doored G4. It had 2 optical drives, right? If so, how do you eject them? I know you press the lil "eject" button on the keyboard, but what if you have 2 drives? Does that make any sense?

    As I remeber, holding down the option key when pressing the eject key, ejects the second drive.

    You can configure it (I think), but the default is option+eject

    Also ...

    With two drives installed you'll get an eject icon on the toolbar (up at the top of the screen). When you click on it you can select which drive you want to open or close. There is a way to put it there even if you've got only one drive, but I don't remember how to do that.

    Regards,
