How to autorun a CD or Program


I know in Windows, if you put in a Cd it autoruns the CD. How do I do this in CentOS? I put the CD in but it just pops up the different files. When I double click "autorun" it does nothing.

Can I copy all the contents to a folder and run it? If so how?

I'm very new to Linux/CentOS.

Thanks.

Your windows programs will not work on CentOS, and autorun is a windows feature.

PS: They may work if you use wine, but not all programs do, and you have to manually select the executable(.exe) and run it.

This is a Windows or Linux program. There are Linux and Windows folders/files in this program. It's HP Firmware CD and according to them, you put in the CD and run it. The problem is I don't know how to run it in Linux. I've gotten other firmware CD's to work such as Dell, but this one won't run when you do /autorun.

Thanks.

Linux normally has it's own drivers on the distribution. Post the exact model of your HP hardware and tell us as much as you can.

also open a terminal window: Go to the menu Applications->Accessories->Console

write in to the terminal window:
Code:
sudo lsmod
sudo lspci
you may need to put your password.

Paste the output here.

PS: also paste the output off:
Code:
sudo lsusb

I see. It's a server. Why are you trying to install the HP firmwires. Does any piece of hardware doesn't work properly?
