Mac CDs

I want to make CDs for a Mac so that when the CD is inserted it pops up a splash screen program. How do I do this? (a) if it is my own program, or (b) is there a piece of software that does this already that I can reuse?

Also what is the nearest equivalent of Visual Basic on the Mac platform?

When you burn a CD in Toast there is an option (when you choose the volume to burn) to choose an autostart program. Choose your splash screen to auto open..Probably in PICT format but you could also do it through director or somesuch. The other way to do it is to use:
 http://studwww.rug.ac.be/~tdgroote/cgi-bin/ClickCount.pl?url=http://studwww.rug.ac.be/~tdgroote/p2i/packages/P2I_31_PPC.BIN

What this program does is take a PICT file and convert it into many many icons that can be placed into a finder window or onto a CD so that it looks like you have a picture in a window. Simply place it into a window that is open when you burn the CD and that window will open every time the CD is inserted.

Visual Basic exists on the mac platform as well.

The closest thing to Visual Basic for the Mac is RealBasic.
