Ummmmmmm, this is a FreeBSD list!  Next time, subscribe to:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] or some similar list.

If you put 'autoexec.bat' in the root directory, the commands
contained within it will execute before going into Windows.

If Windows needs to be running, take a copy of your shortcut to
the batch file and put it in:

C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\

You will know you are in the right directory because there
should be some other programs that run on boot up.
