Ok - i'm attempting to install Vista Business Edition on a MBP using the multi-disk installers from MSDN.

All's well until the installer demands disk 2 - the Eject key doesn't work without the mac drivers.

I know you can press shift-f10 to access the command line, is there a command to eject the cd?

You need to use nircmd utility. Check out here.
You should add this tool to Vista installation using nLite, then burn a modified Vista DVD, then install happily.
