You can certainly create such a scipt, but you cannot make it "auto run." That property is a function of the computer mounting the CD. The target machine, for example, would have to be set to auto-mount the CD, and then check for the auto run script. Both KDE and GNOME, among several, can enable software to do this "auto mount and run (or play music or whatever); but most of the linux users in my linux group turn this functionality off.
