Sox and Cron Jobs

apps

#1

Some software that I want to install requires Sox (Sound eXchange, http://sox.sourceforge.net/) to be installed on the server side. Sox converts audio formats by the way. Is there any chance of getting Sox installed on the server?

I am also in need of installing 2 Cron Jobs and I have no idea how to do that. I briefly looked over some Cron Job tutorial posts on this site and others, and it all sounds like jibberish to me. If there were a specialized tutorial for Dreamhost users to use Putty to Cron Job I could probably figure it out. Is there any way that I could either get a quick tutorial (something better than https://panel.dreamhost.com/kbase/index.cgi?area=2506) or have the 2 files placed for me?
