[SOLVED] Slackware and cronjobs

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I wonder what's the orthodox way to handle cronjobs on a Slackware machine. Say I have to run a weekly backup script. I'd edit crontab using crontab -e like this, for example: Code: 15 3 * * 0 root /root/backup.sh So the script would run every Sunday at 3:15 AM. Now in Slackware, there's a series of cron.daily, cron.weekly etc. directories, containing each a series of scripts, to be run at respective intervals. I wonder if an orthodox way of running my script would be to move and rename it to, say, /etc/cron.weekly/backup... and then leave it there. I'd be grateful for the relevan (HowTos)
