Crontab is a Linux/UNIX tools to run a command on specific schedule(s). You can search to find how it can be admininstered, this link is one of the example.
The menu Settings/Technical/Scheduler/Scheduled Actions that Temur had mentioned provides you a way to schedule something withint Odoo/OpenERP. But AFAIK, it is not the right tool to choose if you want to do backup.
Now, you need to have something to be run by the crontab. To back-up database, you need to run pg_dump from command line. You can find manual for pg_dump in this link. To back-up files (file system), you can use various tools, simplest would be a tar-compression combinantion like explained in this link.
