Question need help setting up a cron job !!

Hello, I am trying to set up cron to start up mozilla, which will connect to a server that streams live audio through realplayer. I want to record the live streams while I am not home, so I need It to start up while I am not here, I belive I have everything else set up properly, at least it all seems to work right, except getting cron to start up mozilla.
I am using Mandrake 9.1
Any one have any suggestions?

" I belive I have everything else set up properly"

Set things up so that you can do what you want with a single command, say:

Then place an entry in /etc/crontab to execute livestream at the correct times. You can edit /etc/crontab with a text editor or with:
crontab -e /etc/crontab

Here is the format of /etc/crontab
Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
