Crontab not working

I have this crontab:
@reboot /opt/lampp/lampp start
But it doesn't run when the server boots up. I know that cmd works. Any idea what is wrong?

I haven't used @reboot in cron before, but for starting programs when the box boots I put an entry into /etc/rc.d/rc.local. Will that work in your situation?
