Everything looks allright to install the default crontab now.
If you didn't install all bbs programs yet, you better hit
Control-C now and run this script when everything is installed.
If you insist on installing the crontab without the bbs is complete
you might get a lot of mail from cron complaining about errors.
The default crontab will have entries for regular maintenance.
You need to add entries to start and stop polling fidonet uplinks.
There is a example at the bottom of the crontab which is commented
out of course.
On most systems you can edit the crontab by typing "crontab -e".
