This article might help on the syntax of a crontab:
The EDITOR environment variable specifies what editor is launched, the default being vi
might be more friendly to you...
The crontab you want is
0 * * * * /usr/local/awstats/blahblah
which will start it on the hour, every hour.

thnks..i'll check somewhere to understund those "0 * * * *" thanks. Duckula msg:914022 8:35 pm on Mar 13, 2004 (gmt 0)
to understund those "0 * * * *"
'man 5 crontab'
It means: "at minute 0, every hour, every day of the month, every month, every day of the week".
