Default Automatic Exe

Some softwares, like Norton Antivirus 2003 and others requires a reboot before and after installation.I want the softwares present in the CD in the CD-ROM drive to get installed automatically as it restarts .How to edit before burning these softwares on to a CD.

There is also a way of doing it using a text file that makes the computer read this. It is called a autorun.inf file.

This is a program which will help you make one to insert into the main part of the cd you want something to boot from

This is also a webpage stating how you could make one yourself. It seems rather simple:

Example:

[autorun]
open=autorun.exe
icon=autorun.ico
