Thanks to all who responded. =A0I forgot to mention that the jobs were =
appended in a self-destructing /etc/rc3.d script which the post jumpsta=
script created.

Two solutions were presented one was to simply
echo "job-specifics" >> /a/var/spool/cron/crontabs/root

The other involved letting cron rebuild it's spool file as follows:

cron -l root > /tmp/crontab.root
cat /path/to/newstuff >> /tmp/crontab.root
crontab /tmp/crontab.root
rm /tmp/crontab.root

Thanks once again fro all your help.
