Hmmm, interesting.  I don't know how to set up a cron job (I'm a Linux
newb) so I may be hassling you again here soon.

I'll take a look at the setup utilities again when I get home, but I don't
remember seeing it there when I looked before.  How do others do this
(particularly with schedules direct)?
