how to auto boot to a program

How can I make windows auto boot to a program, without
the need of using the user interface, etc

I heard of something like c:/autoboot.ini

Also is their a possibility I can easily make it
skip Windows logo loadup sign, and go straight to the program?

No. Windows has to load first.

I've seen a few boards with a "Jukebox" program built into the BIOS which could play music without booting the entire computer. Think of an mp3 player built into the motherboard. Never saw the use in it.

A regular program needs some sort of Operating System to ... uhh ... operate it.

In some latest models of Sony Vaio they have something like fast internet access mode where you can browse internet without loading windows or something like that.Only the basic functions like Wifi and internet explorer is active in that mode.
