Arbitrary function generator

I am trying to construct a gaussian pulse to drive the galvanometer that we'll be using as a stimulus. I want the pulse width to be 50 ms, and I want the stimulus to be presented at 5 Hz for 2 seconds. What I don't understand is how to program this into the function generator and turn my equation into a waveform. Anyone have experience with this type of equipment (ours in particular is a LeCroy LW420).
