Safest method is to hold down your mouse button while the computer starts up, and keep holding it down until it ejects (in 20-40 seconds).
You'll probably need a wired (not wireless) mouse for this to work.
(You can force the Mini to turn off by holding down the power button for 5-10 seconds. Obviously only do this if you can't do a normal shutdown.)MacIntel Mini 1.83, 2 Gig, OSX 10.4.11; iBook G4 800, 640 Meg, OSX 10.3.9, Dell 1704-FPV monitor, NeoOffice, Camino, Thunderbird, Parallels, Compositor

If you're using a G4 mac mini then hold CommandOption+OF when it's booting. When the command prompt shows up type "eject cd" then when the CD comes out type "mac-boot".
I'm not sure if there's an equivalent on intel macs though...Macbook Core Duo 1.83Ghz 512Mb Ram, Mac Mini G4 1.33Ghz 512Mb Ram, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
