I don't know, but perhaps a little clarification will help

When a CD mounts the system will look for:

AUTORUN.INF

My Autorun looks like this:

[Autorun]
open=INSTALL.EXE


I am thinking there are Mac CDs that automount  (Kids games and the like.)
So there must be something along this line the finder will look for.
