Creating batch file to auto install as domain admin

It's been awhile since i have used batch files. I am trying to create a batch file to include runas /user:domain\admin password

Is the above line correct. It doesn't seem to work and is prompting me for a passoword.

Thanks in advance for your help

That's not possible by design. Microsoft did not implement a password argument to avoid exactly this situation: that an admin password is stored as clear text in a batch script.
That said, try if one of these work for you:
* cpau from http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/cpau/index.htm
* lsrunas/lsrunase from http://www.moernaut.com/
