    cron job problem

    I tries to edit my cronjob by typing crontab -e, then it will comeout with this prompt

    You (roime) are not allowed to use this program (crontab)
    See crontab(1) for more information

    I have open cron.allow and remove cronjob there but it's still not work...i have also remove cronjob schedued from crontab file in /etc/crontab and reboot my pc, but it''s still in the same problem...Do anybody know what's really happen?...

    the user, i suppose 'roime', has to be allowed to use cron.
    om my solaris, insert the user in /etc/cron.d/cron.allow
    and if present, remove it from /etc/cron.d/cron.deny
    you don't mentione witch OS you are on
    i never heard about /etc/crontab
    correctly set the EDIROR variable
    read man pages
