I don't know what ``BlankIs'' is. Mounting your USB-thingie should be
done using an entry in /etc/fstab (unless you're using something more
fancy than basic mounting). Like this one:
/dev/sda1	/usb		vfat	auto  0       0

To run a script at startup (with root priviledges), make a symlink (man
ln) to your script in /etc/rcS.d/S90myscript or the like. Then it'll be
executed (remember to have `chmod +x`'ed it) at boot. Also remember,
that the script should return, or it'll make the boot process hang
