The reason is most probably that crond is not unning at all - at least
in the default configuration (i. e. as ELDK installs it) it is not

Try running the command "service crond status" - I bet it says "crond
is stopped".

You can use the command "chkconfig crond on" to enable crond in the
init scripts, so it gets automatically started when the system boots,
and you can use the command "service crond start" to start it in the
running system (i. e. without need to reboot or change runlevels).

Best regards,
