CD ejection on a G4 (exMacOS) How??

trying to install Debian on my G4:
finding Ethan Benson's special boot-ISO for neworld PPCs, nice new
yaboot and no need to switch the disk from ATA100 (thanks Ethan) .. I
thought "At last I can get Debian into my new G4". All seemed to be
going fine when I got to the bit beyond tasksel and deslect and the bit
where you feed the 7 CDs in to build the packages file. But of course
on the fabulous new G4 there's no hard way of ejecting the disks (no
external eject-button, and nowhere for that old paperclip), so you
can't build the file. Hoping I might get by with just CD#1, I went
ahead, but NO! Dependencies not met...
Can someone help me out? I tried just about every key combination I
could think of, and short of a can-opener ... HOW (the ****) do you get
to switch the CDs?
I'm hesitant to use a hammer on my new Mac, though I'm close to
concluding that's what it deserves...
(Just in case there's some discrepancy I'm unaware of, I was using the
3.0r1 7-CD set for the software install)
& pardon me, I've multi-posted this.
