if above did not work here's another thing to try: boot the machine into Open Firmware by doing the following:

1. restart the machine, and immediately hold down these 4 keys simultaneously: Cmd-Option-O-F (that's a letter O, not a numeral zero before the F)

the machine should boot but show a white screen instead of the normal Mac OS

2. at the prompt, type: eject cd then press Return

this should hopefully eject the disc and show OK on the screen.

3. at the prompt, type: mac-boot then press Return

your machine should boot normally

Actually, one more thing, this has worked whenever I've had stuck disks, verify the hard disk, and run the drutil -eject shell command at the same time.
