This is probably another small issue, but I think it is probably safer to use "crontab -e" to edit your crontab than to actually edit the crontab file.

In most Unix systems I've used, there is a comment at the top of the crontab file that expressly says not to edit that file.

Anyhow, the process to do so is this:

prompt% setenv EDITOR "pico -w" (if you want pico)
prompt% sudo crontab -e
