Question Autostart/Autorun Applications

I have developed a CD that runs both Windows and Mac software. I would like it to function as an autorun/autostart; I do not have a problem with the Windows code, but I do for the Mac. I do not feel like investing a couple of hundred $$$ into software, when, I am sure that several lines of UNIX code could help me out. It has been 10 years since I fooled with UNIX-forgive me if I am not in the right forum. Thank you. HornetDr

What kind of autorun you're looking at ? In KDE / Gnome or via CMD line player ?

Autostart/Autorun Applications

I am not using a commercial application for the CD; just want to run script. If the CD is inserted in a Mac, it will take the user to a prompt that will allow them to click once to simultaneously open a file and program. Thank you.
