Thanks.  I did find today that there is nothing in the cron.  I'll check 
inetd.  Do you recommend setting the bios clock to local time?  I guess I 
should use a high debug level of logging, so there's lots of data.  What 
other files besides /var/log/messages?  
I'll be away from work 3 days, might get back to you if I still can't figure 
it out.  make files don't work too well with this situation :~(
