Set up a Chron job on unix or a Windows Task in the Scheduler perhaps.

Hi Gary,

on a Windows 9X platform will do..

Umm, I'm not sure about 9X but for NT Kernal (NT, 2000, XP) the cron equivalent is At. Here's an example:

That will run the batch file C:\cron\backup.bat at 3:30AM on the fifteenth of every month.

That won't help him for win9x.
I'm not sure if win9x has the task scheduler or not, but I know 2k and XP has it for sure.
Check here:
start->accessories->system tools->task scheduler
if you have it, play around with it a bit, easy enough to figure out. If not, upgrade to a respectable OS
I agree. Here's the link:
