Mac OSX Leopard - disc stuck during install

I was reinstalling OSX but it fails being unable to read the disc.  Thing is, I can't get the disc out and when I reboot it just launches into the installation again and gets to the same point.

So I'm stuck in a continual loop, not able to get the disc out to change it for another.

Please help!

Try following these instructions to extract the disc...


Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive

 
Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:

 
1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the left mouse button until the disc ejects.

 
2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.

 
3. Press COMMAND-E.

From someone else who had a similar issue:
tilt macbook sideways so the CD drive was angled down at a slant while pressing fingers up against the bottom of mac and into the CD drive, which would push the CD out. Hopefully this works as an alternative method and it helps somebody out.
