Thanks for the response.  I went ahead and told it to install as the
system user.  Seems to be working fine by my basic tests.  I ran 2
test cron jobs.  One for a date stamp and the other for a mount list.
Looks like it reports the same mount table that I see when using it
interactively and the date stamp was what I had expected.  Both
outputs were sent to a file in my home directory and were run right on
schedule.  Ok maybe there was a 2 second delay but I'm not being picky
