each user has thier own crontab, which will execute those items as that user, the job will run but might not actually do anything due to perms issues.  So if the cron job will do something that the user usually CAN do then it will work fine.

Where I could find the config file?
re: Where I could find the config file?
You don't just vi the cron file,
you do something like this:
crontab -l > /tmp/cron.root
vi /tmp/cron.root
add your entry (see man crontab for very explicit instructions)
then crontab /tmp/cron.root
