crontab exception

I had two scripts added under crontab in one server under root/*/*/ directory.
Now I copied the scripts to another directory under different user(not root) and made the changes in the crontab entry .But the scripts are not getting executed at given time intervals after the changes.Is it beacuse the cron job is configured under root directory?Please look below at the output after I gave the command ps -eaf |grep crond

root 10351 1 0 05:53 ? 00:00:00 crond

I am confused...Please advice..

Thanks in advance

Hi 151803,

Can you post your crontab entries and/or a listing (ls -l) of the cron directories you are mentioning?
