    I need to run a script from Sunday-Thursday every minute between 5am-9am every month.

    basically I need:

    * for minutes
    1-5 for weekdays
    5-9 for hours
    * for month

    AND:

    ? for day of month but it seems this is not allwowed? How else am I supposed to get this working?

    see screen shot: http://screencast.com/t/qsgV7Cn2

    ###edit###
    I might be wrong about that ? but I can't leave it empty either...

    A wildcard in cronjobs is * and not ?. Replace ? with * and click on save.

    but doesn't * mean all? or will the 1-5 in days of the week take precedence so that it doesn't run every day?

    You have to use * there, as you defined the days alread in the days of week field.
