hi
for cron job
you need to follow the steps


chkconfig crond on
service crond restart


crontab -e -u root ---- this is for creating cron for a user *** here user is root you can give any name

#min Hour DoM Month Dow command
0 4 * * 1,3,5 mail -s "boo" $LOGNAME < boo.txt


this particular cron will send a message to the logged user a message from boo.txt on mon wed and fri every 4 hours
