shut down the computer.

unplug the cord.

hold down the bower button (this will 'zap the pram')

plug it in again and reboot.

 

The CD may have slid off the tray.

If you could get the case open, it could pop out.

Otherwise... repair man time.

zapping the PRam won't help, so don't bother...

 

if the cd has an icon on your desktop try highlighting it and pressing Cmd+Y (cmd is the one with the little apple on it)...

 

try restarting while holding down the letter C to try to force it to boot from the cd, this might result in a failure telling you there's no operating system and possibly kick out the cd... if this doesn't work start up and hold the eject key...

 

this is all guesswork on my part though
