The FAQ entry is about the mistake of using the crontab utility to install the 
system crontab (or a copy) as root's user crontab ( This is not helped by the 
fact that /etc/crontab refers to itself as "root's crontab" ). 

There is no such problem with simply editing  /etc/crontab - it's the more 
straightforward approach.
