I'm not faliliar with linux, I'm currently a sysadm on a SCO opercerver
system. However I'm on a Linux system at school and am having trouble
setting up a crontab. either my syntax is wrong or my commands are wrong.
It is not like SCO's, I have that mastered. Tried to use the same cronfile
but it is not working. I'm trying to auto mail me stuff as needed I think
my mail syntax is wrong also. Here are my files, they work fine in sco, can
someone help me convert this to Linux? Or foward me to some documentation
on this subject? Thank,s in advance......

Cronfields: Don't even know if the fields are the same??? the MAN
is just not enough to help me.
