4. Press COMMAND-E.
5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in
your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

Using the Terminal application and typing in the code (#5) was the answer. Thank you! My keyboard does not have an "eject" key, and even if it did, something has to be selected for that to work -- and if the disc doesn't show up on the desktop, well, there's nothing to select. Thanks for the info; I've written it down in case it happens again.
