    1 - 1.25 g4 iMac 17" w/superdrive (2003)
    ram, yes, full =1 gig
    disks-10.4 burns from a friend

    ok so I am a Luddite and finally got around to upgrading from 10.3.9.
    The disk said it was bad (a copy from a friend) but it won't give up the disk.
    and now when it turns on i get this panic we are hanging out here.

    So I need to know how to get this stuck disk out, and then what to do to restore my mac to working condition.

    I bow at the feet of knowledge.

    thank you so much
