# ls /etc/rc`runlevel | cut -c3`.d/*myth*

Then write a script in /etc/init.d to wait for the USB drive to appear, 
and link it to an "S" value one less than used by mythbackend for your 
runlevel.  That is, if you find mythbackend is S42mythbackend in your 
normal starting runlevel, you link /etc/init.d/mydrivewaiter to 
S41mydrivewaiter.
