Thank you, that's a lot of help.
I figured out that the cron.daily under /etc has the cron file and also figured out the command it's running.
I am also planning on doing something similar you suggested.
Don't edit the cronfile directly! :-)
If you're familiar with editing the crontab, please accept my apologies for "lecturing".
However, if you do need to edit your user crontab and you aren't familiar with it, I'd suggest this tutorial (http://weather.ou.edu/~billston/crontab/
). There are plenty of others- this was the second one I found when I Googled "crontab tutorial" (I didn't like the first as much).
Anyway, read that tutorial and see if it makes sense.
Also, "Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide" by Steve Shah (ISBN# 0072225629) is an *excellent* book that you will find very useful. It covers topics in a way that helps you understand what is going on, but is thourogh enough to serve experienced Linux administrators, too. I keep it on my desk.
