timot,

-Create a file called autorun.inf
-The first line of this file should be [AutoRun]
-the next two lines set the icon of the CD and determines which executable to run when the CD is inserted.  Those two lines look like the following:
open=myprog.exe
or if your program is in another directory:
open=MyDir\myprog.exe

For the icon:
icon=myicon.ico
or if you want to use the icon of the executable use:
icon=myprog.exe,0

The autorun.inf file should be placed in the root directory of the CD.
