Thanks, I took Tim's template and have been "making it work". This
explains why the /var/spool/... locations are different for the atd
schedules and the cron equivalents. 

I assume that init gets the atd daemon started?

After creating a "job", which reported it to be job #1. The at -c <job>
command becomes clear at this point, dispite the lack of docs.

Thanks again for all the good pointers,
