Subject:   Cannot edit/find "crontab" to edit

I followed the instructions to backup the crontab file. The next step was to edit the file. Unfortunately, pico text editor returned a message to the effect that crontab files had been moved elswhere. I am reluctant to continue because I do not wish to make any mistakes. I would be grateful if you would direct me how I should deal with this problem so that i may continue with the tutorial

    I ran into the same problem. I'm using 10.4.9, and it instructed me to go to Server/Library/LaunchDaemons, but then told me there was no such directory.

      EDIT: Reran it, and made a mistake. It redirected me to System/Library/LaunchDaemons .
