If you're on NT Server, you can install Mysql as a Service, which 
will do exactly what you want. The instructions are in your 
distribution, probably in the README.NT file or some such file 
(sorry, I can't recall the exact instructions at the moment).

If you're on Win95/98, I don't think that's an option. Haven't used 
either of those in a while, though.
