Please read:

man config::crontab
man cpio
man crontab

Maybe this can help you.

I liked Konserve for personal home usage.

http://konserve.sourceforge.net/

Very easy and userfriendly.

I tried crontab.

I was going to test it first with just appending to a file.

so I had my script that did that in the bin folder. changed the permisions.

then created hello.cron.
* * * * * /root/bin/hello.sh
that way I could see the file grow to make sure it was working.

I kept getting a mail in spool thing.

as for rsnapshot.. haven't had a chance to try it yet.

You could install kcron if your using KDE in order to make sure and learn the syntax properly for cron. I believe that package is included in kdeadministration or something?
