Extra cron jobs not in "crontab -e"?


Hey guys, I was in the process of trying to slim down the stuff running on my box that I don't actually use. So I was playing around in Webmin to find out that, in the Scheduled Cron Jobs section I see lots of jobs for root.
Now this is fine, however when I do a "crontab -e" I don't see those jobs for root. Where are these stored/set and how can I get to them from the shell?

I found the stuff in the /etc/cron.daily, .weekly,. monthly but where are the other jobs at?

For instance mrtg is being run every 5 minutes, where is that being set?

Thanks so much for the help!
oh, and its a redhat 9 box.

-Jake

You might check /etc/crontab. It's responsible for actually launching the stuff in the cron.hourly, cron.daily, etc. directories. It's separate from root's personal crontab (that you accessed with crontab -e).
