Ok, so I've created and uploaded the file, then ran PuTTY [it was open Smile] and:
[tab]$ crontab crontab.txt
[tab]$
Is it setup now?

Yep. Now, because of the nature of the script, you'll probably get an email every time it posts an entry for you that you've scheduled for future. If that happens and you don't want it to, it's an easy fix; just add >> /dev/null to the end of the line in crontab.txt and repeat the steps.

It won't be there until 15 after the hour server time, as the script will run every 15 minutes. It's not adviseable to run the script more often than that. From within the shell, type 'date' minus quotes to see what the current server time is.

There is no publish on date. Assuming your blog is set for EST, if you go to your website right now, your post should be there.
