    Naturally, try pressing the eject button on the keyboard.

    If that doesn't work, restart the computer and as it's rebooting, hold the mouse/trackpad button.

    Hold down the eject key and wait for the disc to come out, it can tkae upto 20 seconds. :) Keep it held down.

    I had this problem when I tried using Boot Camp, the XP disc was in and it kept saying disc error and OS X wouldn't start up, I nearly died of panic, but then I thought about holding down the eject button, it worked.
