    I have Vista on 4 cd's. I tried to install it via Boot Camp, but when I needed to insert a new disc, I couldn't eject the first one.

    Any idea how I can install it?

    You need the DVD version of the install disk. I suppose you could try burning the contents of the 4 CDs on to a bootable DVD, but I'm just speculating that this could work--I've not seen this reported anywhere as being successful. Another idea--borrow a DVD containing the same version of Vista you've purchased from someone. As long as you've paid for a license code, this would be perfectly legal. Good luck.
