no.. in fact it's not a VB question... you should create a file called autorun.inf and put it on the CD-ROM together with your other files... the file should contain something like this..

Just make a simple text file in notepad and put:

OPEN = setup.exe

And thats it!! I must admit I always thought there should be more to it but no, thats it.

Hope this helps.
