If the cron jobs are in /etc/cron.daily (as opposed
to actual entries in crontab), then be sure the file
permissions and ownership are set properly.  Use the
other files in cron.daily as an example.

Look, of course, at /var/log/messages to see if the
jobs are reporting why they can't run.

A 'ps as' shows that crond is running, right?

hope this helps,
