Oh my gosh.  Well, I figured out the problem: crontabs and vixie-cron
weren't installed.

On all the CentOS 5 servers I'm having this problem on, I did a minimal
installation.  That is, I didn't select any package groups or anything
else when I did the install.  I guess crontab and vixie-cron aren't
included in the minimal/basic installation.

That brings up a question: why weren't they included?  Isn't cron a
fairly basic service?  I don't recall this happening with CentOS 4.

Has anyone else done a bare minimum install and had this problem?
