I have an internal ls120 drive (ide) and tried eject on it.  I get some
activity from the drive, but it does not eject.  I get:

"eject: CDROMEJECT ioctl failed for `/dev/hdc': Input/output error"

I just tried eject with my cdrom and it wouldn't work.  I had xplaycd
up, but not running.  I killed xplaycd and fired eject up and the cdrom
popped out.  Is it possible you have something like xplaycd running
that's stopping eject from working??
