After inserting the USB stick, open Explorer and right-click on its
drive letter and select Properties.  Select the AutoPlay tab, and all
should become fairly obvious.  You probably want to set it to "Prompt me
each time to choose an action" for each content type.

I don't think you can do this without the USB stick inserted, because
the drive letter will be missing.  Perhaps some registry hacking would
be required in that situation.

I wonder if the procedure is the same in Vista.
