rhes 5, crontab, and logwatch


I'm not sure if this is a cron question or logwatch.
I have a newly installed RHES 5 box. It is running LogWatch. The box does not have a root crontab, at least not in /var/spool/cron. LogWatch gets run once a day. What is running it? I've never seen a new install that doesn't have something running in cron. I'm confused.

Thank you

Thank you,

I found an entire structure under /etc. I'm from a Solaris and IRIX environment and am used to it being under /var/spool. I bought a book last night on RHES to help me learn the differences.

Thank you.
