    I am in the process of installing Windows XP Home Edition. Well actually I have already installed it on my MAC OS. I printed and followed the bootcamp guide to a "T"> I a at the point where the guide says to insert the MAC installation disk to do something with the bootcamp drivers. However, I can't get the Windows disk to eject. Could it be that the Windows is not reading my MAC keyboard when I hit the eject button? I have tried to restart the computer but Windows is the opening screen. I know I did the partitioning correctly if the guide is correct. All my business is located in the MAC partition. HELP!!!
    Please advise me as to what to do!!!
    Thanks so much!

    So in windows if you open My Computer and right-click on DVD icon and select Eject from pop-up menu it doesn't eject?

    You can also hold down the left mouse button when you reboot the Mac and that will also eject and DVDs/CDs.
