Installing satellite dish on flat rubber roof

I have a flat rubber roof and I want to install a satellite dish on it. How do I find out what material lies underneath the rubber roof membrane? I am also worried that whatever I do to attach the satellite dish, the roof would have a hole. How do I seal these holes around the screws used to fix the dish?

I've never worked on roof before. But since it's flat, and access to it is easy, I thought I would install the dish myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First, why does it have to be installed on the roof?
This is the last place we will do an install.

Okay, is this a big C-band dish or small Direct or DishNet dish?

Either way you do not want to penetrate the roof membrane.
There are mountimng frames which can be purchased A 10 foot dish uses a hexagonal base that holds 60 standard cinder blocks.
A 'lil dish can be installed with four blocks. But, why bother, standard installation on a lil dish is free. But you'd have to pay for the special mount base and blocks.
