Actually you can use PgAgent which comes packaged with PgAdmin III.
I've used it successfully on both windows and RedHat linux.  I think it
works anywhere PostgreSQL works.  The nice thing about PgAgent is that
you can see the status of jobs from the PgAdmin administrative tool and
trigger a manual run of a scheduled job from PgAdmin tool from anywhere.

Hope that helps,
