    So is your coplaint about not being able to get the disk out? Or not being able to install leopard?

    If its the former, hold the alt on bootup, and select to boot into Tiger, try ejecting the disk from there.

    If its the latter: Did this install disk come with another Macbook, or is it retail? Install disks that come with a machine are specific to that model. Wont install on anything else.
