For root-owned stuff, use the system crontab
Authored by: googoo on Jul 10, '03 01:17:21PM

You do not have to restart anything after modifying /etc/crontab. The cron process reads the /etc/crontab file (along with the various user crontab files) each minute to see if anything needs to run. For more information, check out the cron and crontab man pages.
