Countdown clock that resets automatically?

I want to add a javascript clock to my web page that counts down DAILY from 8:00 until 17:00 EST... It should display the current date and time and the time left until 17:00...

Ex: November 7, 2007 11:35 EST ------- 5 Hours, 25 minutes remaining until ....

I can find scripts on the web that already do this. However, this repeats EACH day Monday thru Friday from 8:00 until 17:00... So at 8:00 the following day, the counter should reset and begin another cycle...

Ideally, I would want this to be automatic so I didn't have to change the ending date each day...

Any ideas on how I should proceed?

<script language="javascript">
function NeedCntDown() {
var dt = new Date();
// Sunday = 0, Saturday = 6
// Do counter on Monday and Fridays
if (dt.getDay() == 1 || dt.getDay() == 5) {
   //
   // Your script goes here.
  //
}
</script>

Hi,

<head>
<script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

var now = new Date();
var event = new Date("Sep 29 2001 00:00:01");
var seconds = (event - now) / 1000;
var minutes = seconds / 60;
var hours = minutes / 60;
var days = hours / 24;
ID=window.setTimeout("update();", 1000);
function update() {
now = new Date();
seconds = (event - now) / 1000;
seconds = Math.round(seconds);
minutes = seconds / 60;
minutes = Math.round(minutes);
hours = minutes / 60;
hours = Math.round(hours);
days = hours / 24;
days = Math.round(days);
document.form1.days.value = days;
document.form1.hours.value = hours;
document.form1.minutes.value = minutes;
document.form1.seconds.value = seconds;
ID=window.setTimeout("update();",1000);
