Default Autostarting Windows XP

Hello all..

I have a question, how do you set a computer to autostart?? It's a Compaq computer. Running Windows XP. Any help would be greatly appriciated. If you need more elaboration i am sure i can get u more information.

It's a 2 gig processor i think, 512MB ram, 40 gig hard drive. Cd Burner, Kt card installed for DH+, and a regular modem.
