If you’re on unix and have Subversion installed,
./script/plugin install http://svn.kylemaxwell.com/rails_cron/trunk
Some people have been havnig problem with “script/plugin install” 
so if it doesnt work for yuo, use the svn client directly;
svn co http://svn.kylemaxwell.com/rails_cron/trunk rails_cron
If you’re on windows, not sure how SVN is best worked with there.
There are GUI clients. Download one, and grab the rails_cron plugin
from the URL shown above.
Once you’ve got the plugin, read the README file.

running regularly recurring background tasks.
