Cron Startup

AIX 4.x

Have three designated users on this machine.
Lets say I update the crontab
crontab -l > foo
make changes to foo and then update the ctab
crontab foo

When I execute the above step
The following message is displayed.

0481-120 The cron program may need to be started.

Q is how and where does one start this.. and secondly should'nt the same message be displayed to the user when logging in....?

Appreciate any response
