[Gllug] rsync and usb

I use rsync to back up my /home to an external hard drive using usb.  This is 
the stanza;= /usr/bin/rsync -av /home/boztu/ /media/disk/`/bin/date +%Y%m%d`/ 
>> /home/boztu/cron/backup.txt

But occasionally when I plug the drive in after a reboot, it comes up with ;= 
/usr/bin/rsync -av /home/boztu/ /media/usb/`/bin/date +%Y%m%d`/ >> 

How can I add the second line to my backup.sh file such that it will run from 
either stanza please?

Take care
