Exclamation Delayed command?

I'd like to (on my dreamhost shared debian server):

run a delayed command, I would like make a file available for download, but only for a short amount of time (say 48 hours) and then after that, remove the file. without having to manually removing the file? (as I have been doing through an FTP client.)

is there a way to do this?

I could put into my crontab "rm /home/USERNAME/SITE/file.ext" for the date and time that I would like to remove it from my server.

But how do I do this?

What would you do?

thanks for your help!
