Bill,
I see in the Handbook in section 6.6.1 that I should run crontab
crontab to create a new crontab, which I did, in the /etc directory, as
root. Thus the crontab file in /etc looks like this -
After reading the man page and the one page in the manual I don't know
what to do to fix this -

www# crontab -l
