I tried doing this with @reboot in all the time arguments and in just the
minutes.  When I reboot, neither way works.  How exactly do I put @reboot in
the crontab?  Could you give me an example, please?

Here is what I have currently:

@reboot *       *       *       *    fahstart

'fahstart' is what I normally type to get Folding@Home going. It's a little
script in ~/bin.
