If you would like to automatically run a command/script on a hal event, the
program "ivman" is what you would need.  By editing a config file or two,
and setting ivman to run whenever you boot, you will have automounting for
your usb flash device.  The gentoo wiki has a pretty good description and
examples of how to use ivman to do what you are looking for:

http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_ivman

You can install ivman via apt, so just skip all of that part and go to the
subheading entitled "A Few Example Rules".  If you need further help, please
let me know.
