Why don't you try to put the scripts into one single main script and
put that main script into cron, for example.

sleep 60s

Hope this helps you.

Here's the situation, I have a script1 that I want to run and wait 60
second or so in order to have script2 startup and generate a PID in
/var/run, then have script1 check for the existence of that PID and
alert me if it's not there.  My boss told me of a 'timer' command that
would do this, but I"ve not seen any documentation on it through google
and others.  Is there some way to accomplish this as is or will I need
to tweak my scripts?

I know about the sleep command, but I don't think that would work in
this instance as I don't really want script1 to run immediately.  Does
that make any sense at all?
