[rescue] prioblems with CDROM on Ultras

A week ago I got two Ultras, a 1 for $5 and a 2 for $50.

In trying to get them running I found the CD in the Ultra 1 is broke, 
won't go in or out, just grinds. Is it fixable?

The one in the Ultra 2 just goes out and in but won't stay in. I am 
trying to load Soaris 8 from CD and I can't get the CD to stay in. It 
slides out when you turn it on. When you push the button it goes in for 
a few seconds and then pops out.

Is the CD on the Ultra 2 bad also? Any tricks?

They both came without hard drives. I did get the mounts with the Ultra 1.

I just got a 4 gig for testing which is why I was trying to load SW.
