With crontab you can start things any time or day, but not in a

How would you do that?
You could create a bootscript that uses the "at" command, like so;
echo myscript | at now + 5 minutes
Of course you'd use update-rc.d to set the runlevels you want mybootinit
to start in.
I did not know :-( about at.
So all things being equal, I went for this method.
