Just to add,
To set your favourite editor as the default for every login, you might want to do the following:
1) Go to the user's homedir (eg. /home/keith)
2) Edit the shell dotfile (.bash_login for bash, .cshrc for csh) to have the following values, usually:
export EDITOR=pico (for bash) or
setenv EDITOR pico (for csh)
note that you might want to specify the fullpath, eg
3) Save the file and relogin.
4) Test by typing "crontab -e", Voila! It should bring up your favourite editor.
