Edit:
Obviously, i was wrong. Apologies.
I will keep you posted.

Edit 2:
I was not entirely wrong.
The said article explains it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crontab

Set the day to be saturday (6) and check for the date.
You need to write a small wrapper within the cronjob.

This must be more clear what crontab entry should look like...


crontab entry

* * * * * command to be executed
- - - - -
| | | | |
| | | | +----- day of week (1 - 7) (monday = 1)
| | | +------- month (1 - 12)
| | +--------- day of month (1 - 31)
| +----------- hour (0 - 23)
+------------- min (0 - 59)


So, your crontab entry look like the following..

0 0 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 * 6 command_to_execute

Cheers!!
