[Mailman-Users] Crontab problem?

Hello, all.

	I installed Mailman 2.0.12 onto a Linux machine (RedHat 7.3, custom
2.4.18 kernel).  I followed all the instructions (at least as far as I
know).  I set up a list and can successfully access its administrative
options, list info, etc.  I set my membership list to be manually approved.
	However, when anyone tries to subscribe, here's what happens: the
server sends them a confirmation e-mail and they correctly reply to it.
~ The server does not send them anything else, nor does it send me (the
mailing list owner) anything.  There is nothing in my administration
queue and the membership management list is empty.  The only change that
I can see is a new entry is made in /logs/subscribe.  /logs/error is empty.
	Here's my uneducated prognosis: the cron jobs that are supposed to run
don't run, even though I followed the procedure for adding the
appropriate script to crontab.  The only reason I think that this is the
case is because I cannot think of any other reason why /logs/subscribe
is populated but nothing triggers a mailing to the admin.
	What do you think?  Thanks in advance for any help.
