Take a look at 'man cron' and at this link. It allows you to do certain things at specified hours, minutes, day, etc. In your case, because you'll probably be downloading something else each time I'd suggest creating a shell script that asks for the file's name (or takes it from another file, whatever) and insert an entry in crontab that will run the script when desired.
