I've added a few jobs into my crontab , by making a file and entering there what to run and when

[The cron tab file is a text file organised as follows
MINUTE(0-59) HOUR(0-23) DAYOFMONTH(1-31) MONTHOFYEAR(1-12) DAYOFWEEK(0-6) Note 0 = Sun
with * standing for a wildcard. ] <--hope this is correct

[ 00 02 * * * /opt/bdc/bdc --update ]
[ 00 04 * * * /opt/bdc/bdc --files / --arc --all --disinfect --log=/viruslog/report ]

After that I did this
crontab mycrontab.txt
to set the jobs.

crontab -l I see them listed

The thing that bothers me is, if I reboot this computer, will crontab remember what I told it to do? or will it forget it?
