What the real problem was, was that I had created a cronn job and it
wasn't running and I was wanting to see what was really going on. I
learned later that it was some sort of security problem and wasn't being
ran (even though /var/log/cron said it was.) It would have been nice if I
could have fired up a virtual console and watched the messages go by. I
believe standard unix has such a capability.
