In addition to the information Selwyn already forwarded, you should note that AutoOpenPalettes only affects the behavior when Mathematica is launched. If Mathematica is already running and you want palettes open, then you'll have to use NotebookOpen to open them. Also, AutoOpenPalettes is looking for palettes on the PalettePath, not in arbitrary places on the hard drive. If things continue not to work for you, these are the two reasons I can think of why there might be problems (i.e. you're not trying to affect startup behavior, or your palette isn't on the PalettePath). If you continue to have problems, I'd need to understand your specific situation to answer your question any more clearly.
