I was wondering if there is a unix version of an autoexec.bat, if there is where will it be?

I am new to unix so please be gentle!!

autoexec.bat is suppose to be one of Win32 (MS) components. Anyway check cygwin www.cygwin.com Its a Win32 based Unix variant from RH check it out. You may try on it.

as the unix box starts, it looks like it processes a script (like the windows autoexec.bat)?

There are a few ways that the startup scripts are run. It really depends on your vendor, and the software release.
You should be able to get a good idea of what you have by running the command uname -a. Please post that back, and someone can try to help.

Unix usually runs .profile (it's a hidden file. use 'ls -a' to view it) and .login files present in the HOME directory of the unix machine.
