    I am selling my Mac mini. I went to install Leopard back onto it and as it restarted, I remembered I didn't pull my music off. It hasn't reformatted the hard drive (or install anything yet), but it won't let me back into OS X, just the install screen. What can I do to get my music off? Thanks.

    probably will need to boot it into Target mode and connect it to another Mac via FW.

    More than likely going to be your only way.

    if you need to get the CD out, try holding down your mouse button at startup. It's sort of an emergency eject if you will.

    Just goto File and Quit once the setup program starts, you can always quit the installer CD's. Once it restarts hold down your mouse button right after restart until it ejects the disc.
