	I dunno, I could never even get the simplest cron jobs to work.
Script fine, syntax fine, job just aint run.

	Have I got my syntax wrong in the following crontab entry?

	05,10,15,20,25,30,35,45,50,55,59  * * * * root /root/bin/daemonsup

	It doesn't seem to be running the script when necessary, I have
	the script and it works fine.  I have done /etc/init.d/cron restart
	after each edit.  I'm running debian potato stable.

	Thanks in advance for any help
