you should be able to get into virtual console <Control><Alt><F2> and
issue an eject command...the problem is knowing which device which might
be gathered from std-out or std-error windows <Control><Alt><F3> or <F4>
and I think you get back to standard display with <Control><Alt><F7>

something like this might work...

eject -r

eject /dev/hda
