    So i shut down my uMB (2.0 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD) earlier on with a DVD in the drive. I went to turn it on this evening and it wouldn't boot. I got a black screen saying, that no bootable drive was present. So after I calmed myself down from thinking I had lost my HD I tried to reboot, I held down the trackpad to eject the DVD, which it did. Then it booted fine.

    My question is basically is there some way to change the boot order to prevent it trying to boot to a CD as the default?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't think the SuperDrive is ever the default boot option. The only time it is, is if you used Boot Camp Assistant and on restart it boots off the Windows disc. Try this though, go into System Preferences and click on Startup Disk and select Mac OS X 10.5.x on Macintosh HD and close the window. OS X should be the default boot option.
