To make a CD autostart you need to do the following:
Create a file called autorun.inf and place that in the root of the CD

The contents of the file should be like shown below
Open the the executable that should be autostarted
Icon is the icon that should be shown as CD icon
--- CUT HERE --
[autorun]
OPEN=SETUP.EXE /AUTORUN
ICON=SETUP.EXE,1
--- CUT HERE ---
