SuSE 10.0, running standard cron

I need to force a run of cron.daily.   I've found an obscure note on linuxquestions.org that says to adjust the /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.daily timestamp using touch -t.  If the time is 24 hours after the timestamp, cron.daily should run.   It's not working for me.  Any other switches I could throw?
