fedora locked my cdrom while installing rpms


i was installing rpms using "Add/Remove Applocations"
fedora core 2 asked me for cd 1 & i inserted it into hdd (my cdrw) then it asked me for cd 2 so i inserted it into hdc (my dvdrw)
now it asks me for cd 3 - the problem is neither one of the device eject, it tried to eject using software (kde) and i get the error "eject failed"

[i dont have hde,hdf in my system (;]

what should i do ? restart ?
