   What is the best way to set the cron.daily items to run at 3 am. Currently 
they run at 3 pm which is a pain. I have checked the cron.daily entries and 
the other /etc/cron.x directories, but I can't find a time setting anywhere. I 
have checked man crond and crontab, but I didn't find a reference to setting 
the execution time globally for cron.daily stuff. I have added an entry to 
root's crontab:

0  3  *  *  *  /root/cron/cron-daily

   Is this where this needs to go?
