    I have a 867mhz G4 12 PB that won't eject my Ubuntu 6.06 disc. I installed Ubuntu, ran it some, and was going to try something else off the disc (I forget what now), so I put it back in, finished, and wanted to release the disc. It ejected it from the desktop, but never came out of the drive. I tried booting into OS X via firewire from my other mac, it booted fine, showed the disc, and I tried ejecting. No luck. It ejected it off the screen, waiting 2-3 seconds, then showed up again. I also tried ejecting by holding down the trackpad button upon startup, no beans. Anyone have an idea whats going on? Is my drive cooked?

    Got it, someone told me how to eject via Open Firmware and it worked.
