Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok, so my script is called 'fixresolv.conf' and is located in my home directory. I want it to run every 20 minutes, every day(when my computer is on, obviously it won't run if it's off).
I added the following to the /etc/crontab file
Interesting, I learned something new from that manpage. Also, I never did understand when at the bottom of a man page it said "also see cron(8), crontab(1)". I always thought, "hmmm. I just did man crontab, why do they want me to look at it again?" Thanks, haertig. I guess I should get a for that one.
Anyway, it looks like you could use */20 or 0,20,40...
