I have a PowerPC Mac Mini that is running Ubuntu and when booted it fails to BusyBox. Problem is I cannot boot to live CD because there's a CD already in the slot and for some reason the eject applet isn't present in the version of BusyBox running. Any suggestions?

Reboot the system with the left mouse button held down? – Zoredache Dec 2 '11 at 5:49
Sweet... that worked! If you want, add it as an actual answer and I'll accept it as the answer for you. Thanks! – Bryan Dec 2 '11 at 13:39

On some Apple equipment you can force a CD eject by holding down the left mouse button while turning on the system.
