    Lordy, this is worse than installing a MS Service Pack !!
    I'm afraid Apple time keeping is the same as M$ time keeping. It may say 16hr 22mins but that *could* mean 16 days 22 hrs remaining OR it could mean 16min 22sec remaining. I love M$ guestimates on how long it will take to install/move/delete/copy anything!

    Yeah, quite an old one - tried looking for it online but can't find it - its from 2005 by looking at the number.

    The thing is still installing Final Cut Pro - been doing so for about 3 hours now - I've changed disks countless times......
    Got it on the wireless network but Safari is sulking when trying to get through our proxy server.
    Hmmmm - [ note - whilst installing Final Cut Pro I have ghosted 10 RM Ones........ ]

    Easy, just get a toothpick and put it in the spring release hole.

    If it doesn't have take out the DVD drive and find the release point.

    Of course, since it likely doesn't have either of those, turn it into a doorstop.

    restart and hold down the eject key whilst it is restarting - that should eject it
