Just put a script file called "autorun" in the root of the media (possibly 
setting it's executable permission - not sure whether or not this is needed).

Whether this works and what it does depends on how the machine is set up - the 
autorun functionality is provided by the desktop environment rather than by 
the OS itself. The user will normally be prompted to confirm whether they 
wish to allow the autorun script to execute. The components that implement 
autorun are:

 - GNOME: magicdev
 - KDE: kautorun
