Go here:

http://www.webattack.com/Freeware/system/fwcdrtools.shtml

and download Quick Menu Builder (freeware). This tool gives a nice gui for builder menu's for cdroms, autorun files and so on and so forth. You can created your autorun files with this(for free) and they can be used on any version of windows. The only problem with it is that it needs an absolute path to the browser executable;for this reason I beleive it is best to go with Internet Explorer as the browser for your cd's and this would also, gurantee that the path will be similar on all machines; c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe. I beleive that this path will be acceptable for an autorun.ini file in order to run iexplorer.exe:

%HOMEDRIVE%\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe

if you click start button\run and type in the above line internet explorer WILL open.

Also, as a bonus, you can put this line into your menu header tp open up the menu pre-sized ( I suggest 640X480 as there is still a lot of 14 & 15" monitors kicking around out there.
