I burned an image of a Finding Nemo game I bought for my kids very easily. In order for the program to run without the CD in the drive, I just need to launch the image first and then launch the program. I have a few issues:

1) I can't seem to get Automater to launch the image so I can create a one-click shortcut.
2) When I manually launch it, the contents of the CD open in finder. I want that to be minimized so that my kid doesn't accidentally try to reinstall it. Instead, I want them to just be able to click the actual program (assuming I can't get automator to work).
3) I cannot find a way to autostart programs for managed accounts. Those options are not available under preferences like they are for other accounts. Am I missing something?

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
