RHEL 5.4, "crontab" command not found
 
Hi,
I am trying to run the "crontab" command to setup some user cron entries.

crontab: command not found

/usr/bin/which: no crontab in (/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin)

Huh? I am on RHEL 5.4. Typing "man crontab" brings up nothing.

find / -name crontab -print only finds /etc/crontab

How do I install this basic command?
