I would like to schedule a command at a specific time on my system.I know that theres a file named at.alow and at.deny in my system. I can find the at.deny file but not an at.allow file .
Is there anyway out or i have to go and talk to the system administrator itself , or any other way of scheduling a command at a specific time ..

See the manpage for crontab. There is also the 'at' command. Either one would do what you need.
