This may be better posted on the WebDesign forun even though it's not a web page issue. The experts there may be able to help. HTH TR

I am not exactly clear what you mean about the links but here is a solution for 'Autorun'

Type code below into notepad (using your filename instead of 'welcome') and save as autorun.inf.Use this file in the root directory(ie. not in a folder) on the cd.....Should work ok.


Open=explorer.exe welcome.html

I hope I understand your autorun query correctly. If Scanjet's solution fails the reason is that autorun will not work with an HTML ("web page) file. You need to get hold of a little utility called WINOPEN. If you need it and you email me I can send it to you or it should be easily found if you look on the web.

Again, hope I understand the query. If the links work ok on your HDD they should be just the same on your CD (or DVD). A link is a link!
