Cron Job Question


I have a small question.

When on a Fedora i say crontab -e { as root user }

and say some thing like
0 12 * * * /usr/bin/somecommand >> /dev/null 2>&1

it runs a command called somecommand every day @ 12.00

but where is this entry stored in the machine.

I could not find it.

Any clues?

On the system I just looked at (Slackware), they're under /var/spool/cron/crontabs
