Alright. I'll need the following info:

contents of autoexec.bat
contents of config.sys
contents of dosstart.bat (located in C:\Windows)

Unless, that is, TC wants to handle this one....

hi my doosstart says this@echo off

REM Notes:
REM DOSSTART.BAT is run whenenver you choose "Restart the computer
REM in MS-DOS mode" from the Shutdown menu in Windows. It allows
REM you to load programs that you might not want loaded in Windows,
REM (because they have functional equivalents) but that you do
REM want loaded under MS-DOS. The two primary candidates for
REM this are MSCDEX and a real mode driver for the mouse you ship
REM with your system. Commands that you want present in both Windows
REM and MS-DOS should be placed in the Autoexec.bat in the
REM \Image directory of your reference server. Please note that for
REM MSCDEX you will need to load the corresponding real-mode CD
REM driver in Config.sys. This driver won't be used by Windows 98
REM but will be available prior to and after Windows 98 exits.
REM
REM This file is also helpful if you want to F8 boot into MS-DOS 7.0
REM before Windows loads and access the CD-ROM. All you have to do
REM is press F8 and then run DOSSTART to load MSCDEX and your real
REM mode mouse driver (no need to remember the command line parameters
REM for these two files.
REM
REM - You MUST explicitly specify the CD ROM Drive Letter for MSCDEX.
REM - The string following the /D: statement must explicitly match
REM the string in CONFIG.SYS following your CD-ROM device driver.

REM MSCDEX.EXE /D:OEMCD001 /l:d
REM MOUSE.EXE

auto and config are empty i hope i've done this right by opening from explorer then opening with note pad help!!!!!!!!

No. It's not your fault. But from what I can see, this is going to be much more complicated then they would have thought. But it's definitely not your fault, so don't worry

Maybe we should start at the beginning. Cannon, are you running KSaga, the CD version of WC1, or the disk version of WC1 put on a CD-R?

We're also going to need basic hardware information. We need to know what soundcard you're using and what the make/model of CD-drive you have (I want to see if we can get this running off the CD

Ooh... trying to hotdog it, eh, TC?

Cannon: Your system looks to be pretty new if that's all you have in there. This should be fun.

Here's how to get the hardware information we need: right-click on My Computer, select Properties, and hit the Device Manager tab. Scroll down to the entry labelled "Sound, video and game controllers" and click the plus sign next to it. Tell us what appears there. Then, scroll up to the entry labelled "CDROM" and click on the plus sign by it. Tell us what appears there, too. That's all the information we'll need for now, though we will need more later.

Oh yes, do tell us! =)
Well from the sounds of it, it's a commercial distribution with install programs so the problem is most likely in the lack of DOS drivers. Fun, fun, fun. =)
