So basicly your CD-ROM drive won't open? If that's the case, you see that little hole on the front of it? Usually it's on the right side... Get a paper clip, and try to straighten it. Put the paper clip in that hole, but be careful not to do it too hard. Be slow and gentle. The drive will pop free.

Or do you mean that you are trying to install the OS and you can't get the system to boot off the CD ?

I don't understand what's happening... Is your CD Drive stuck and not opening, or is there another issue?
