MacOs X and Windows CD autostart

Our applications produces CDs with some data and an application used to view the data. We have two versions of the applications on the CD, one for MacOsX and one for Windows. On Windows the programs starts automatically with an autorun.inf file.
How is it possible to make a CD autorun on MacOs X?

I don't think there is a way to do that.  However MacOSX does allow you to set a background image (you can even use a pdf) so you could create a nice welcome screen at least.

Yes, no autostart on OS X and the users are better off with that. You can arrange the root directory of the CD in a nice fashion and let the users start it themselves.
