There is a bit of a danger here, since I have used many systems that 
will upon the boot process will pull in the CD drawer.  To that end, 
you're in trouble whether or not the CD ejects after install!

Of course, that only goes for the "powered" drives.  The tray-type that 
you have to manually push back in, not so big a problem.

Just wanted to put it out there - best to know what your machine will be 
doing if you cannot be there in person, or don't have someone you can 
trust to tend to it.
