Severity: wishlist

Debian CDs should behave under windows, ideally by taking no action, or 
by running a small (splash screen?) application from autorun.inf. While 
preparing to blow away Windows 2003 Server RC2 I burnt today's 
sarge-i386-netinst.iso image in Easy CD Creator. On completion, Windows 
2003 Server (pretty much just Win2k Server + XP skin) scanned the disk 
and told me in a dialog labeled 'Debian testing i (E:)':

Windows can perform the same action each time you insert a disk or 
connect a device with this kind of file:


What do you want Windows to do?

View a slideshow of the images
using Windows Picture and Fax Viewer

Print the pictures
using Photo Printing Wizard

Open folder to view files
using Windows Explorer

Take no action

with an 'Always do the selected action' checkbox and OK and Cancel buttons.

I imagine this is due to the pictures in the 'pics' folder.

Anyway it would be nice if these dialogs could be silenced. Previously I 
would have suggested a GUI for writing floppies could be created, but 
nowdays I'm more inclined to push for something which displays some 
HTML. Unfortunately creating an autorun.inf file containing:


causes errors. Something like:

OPEN=start index.html

may work, but I'm not sure how cross platform it is. What is probably 
required is a call to the ShellExecute API passing the name of the HTML 
file (probably README.html). Although it would be trivial to write such 
an app, one already exists:


I'd really like to see this implemented as I think it would make debian 
somewhat 'friendlier' for new users.

Closes: 185238 301345 306926
 debian-cd (2.2.22) unstable; urgency=critical
   * Steve McIntyre
     - Prepared YA "last before sarge" debian-cd release
     - Urgency "Critical" to make sure we make it in...
   * Joey Hess
     - Add post-sarge udebs rescue-check, initrd-preseed, and preseed-common
       to the udeb exclude list since these will be/are inluded on sid initrds.
     - Add etch directories; point sid symlinks to them.
     - Add rescue stanzas to etch isolinux.cfg. Rescue mode is supported in
       post-sarge d-i images only.
     - Add support for f4.txt that is for systems with the 2.6 kernel.
     - Exclude new mouse-modules udebs from CDs until something in d-i uses
     - debian-installer task files renamed to include distro name and branched
       for etch.
   * Steve McIntyre
     - Make woody's post-boot-mipsel script cope with extra fields in the
       output of sarge's isoinfo
     - Add Suggests: on netpbm and syslinux. Closes: #301345
     - Count the total number of binary and source discs better; sarge can
       have more than 9 CDs, so ?.packages doesn't cut it any more.
     - Don't copy the whole d-i cdrom directory onto CD1 for amd64.
       Closes: #306926
     - Don't copy boot.img.gz onto amd64 CD1.
     - Added Manty's testingcds script as an example of debian-cd use
     - Updated sarge task lists to match the latest sarge CD build
   * Santiago Garcia
     - Allow the usage of a local mirror of the daily d-i builds to be used
       for sid_d-i builds, this is done by setting DI_WWW_HOME=default and
     - Add autorun capabilities to i386 cds so that instead of getting the
       "what do you want Windows to do" question under XP, we get the html
       README started. Closes: #185238
     - Make the jigdos use the same naming scheme as the isos, as per my
       proposal to the list.
     - Add some amd64 patches from Goswin: Fixed boot-amd64 and added
       some packages missing on netinsts.
     - Port to etch previous changes I commited for sarge.
