Crontab usage

Hi,

I am a Linux administrator (newbie) in my company.

Just need to know, as a Linux administrator is it better for me to use /etc/crontab to set my cron jobs. I do not want to use the crontab -e to schedule my cron jobs.

That means can I edit the default settings (to different time settings) in etc/crontab in order to get my database to backed up?

Pls help.

Tqs.
