Using a PC, I've created a CD with an html interface.

I want the user to open start.htm in the root (or autostart if that option
is enabled).

I've followed the instructions in CDEverywhere for creating a hybrid CD, and
it works fine on my old Power mac 7100 but when I tested it today on a
friend's bog-standard modern pretty Imac:

1) it threw up a Finder needs some assistance error

and when I cancelled that

2) It threw up a dialogue asking for the file's creator - Word or Netscape.

OK so I just about knew what to do, but he didn't... and I know another Mac
user gave up using the CD at this point.

How can I make this thing MacIdiot proof?
