I think that this is a Fedora 3 related issue.  crond will not start this
job.  It reports

Feb 11 20:03:37 boesrv01 crond[5427]: (*system*) BAD FILE MODE

I read squidGuard into pico and wrote it as squidGuard1 (changing the
start time for testing), and restarted crond and squidGuard1 works, but
squidGuard generates a message when crond is rstarted.

[root at boesrv01 cron.d]# ls -l
total 16
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 278 Dec  7 23:08 squidGuard
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 278 Feb 11 20:17 squidGuard1
[root at boesrv01 cron.d]# ls -lZ
-rwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:etc_t          squidGuard
-rw-r--r--  root     root     root:object_r:etc_t              squidGuard1

I have no idea what the SELinux stuff is about (a summer project).  Prior
to installing squid, I had a similar problem with my rsync job in cron.d
and "solved" it the same way.

Any ideas?
