Again, assuming you added the command to that line, it *should* work,
but I would leave out the extra 0 in the hour and minute fields.  Try
something like this:

    # Run foo at 2 am on Tuesday and Friday.
    0 2 * * 2,5 foo

I suppose you should also verify that crond is indeed running...  :-)

(Oh, and see crontab(5) and crontab(1) for reference.)
