Description of problem:
When booting from boot.iso the installer says that it didn't find Fedora Core CD and asks to
put such CD. Unfortunately it doesn't eject current (boot.iso) CD and pressing eject key
doesn't work on my ibook G4 1.2GHz. Note that there is no shell on other consoles so no
way to issue ,,eject'' command manually. Also my ibook doesn't have emergency hole to
eject cd manually. This means that fedora is uninstallable on such ibooks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Doesn't eject CD.
Expected Results: Should eject current CD.
probably worth to mention that this is a _known bug_ mentioned in the release
notes, from a test release (for the test tree we pushed at duke)
We definitely need to fix this for fc4
I've made an RFE for an eject dialog in the installer (this would be useful for
other platforms too).
