   install: invalid user `-g'


   Any Idea why this fails only when run as a cron job?

Given the vauge information it is impossible to give a exact response.
But it seems that you are passing the incorrect number of flags to
install.  Maybe your script uses a variable, and it is empty, i.e.

install -u $(FOO) -g $(BAR)

Where FOO is empty and BAR is either empty or defined to something
useful (hence why you get invalid user `-g').

   if this is not the correct list to post this question please
   redirect me to the correct list. might have been better (see the output from
`install --help').
