    are you trying to install the Boot Camp drivers after youve installed Windows? if so you just click the eject disk button in the My Computer Explorer window.

    otherwise just reboot and hold down the mouse button and it should eject.

    I tried holding the mouse button down but it still loads into windows setup. Does it matter if its wireless? I have to reformat my windows partition because I haven't put it in the correct format and I dont think I can do that from the windows setup?

    if you dont mind loosing your current Windows install just boot into the Windows Installer and reformat the partition to either FAT or NTFS and then install Windows again.

    after youve installed Windows eject the disc like i said above and then install the Boot Camp drivers from your Leopard DVD.

    then to make Mac OS X boot by default open the Boot Camp preferences in Control Panel (while still in Windows) and select your Mac OS X partition then click restart.
