I'm doing an everything CD install with FC3 test 2. After installing
disc 1, the installer asked for disc 2. I accidentally installed disc
3 and clicked OK. A dialog informed me that this was the wrong cd,
but now I'm unable to eject the disc.

running 'eject' says, "eject: unable to find or open device for: 'cdrom'"
I seem to be stuck.

Yes, you have to click ok and then it will eject it for you and ask
for the right disc. It's been this way for a while. One of these
