And/or digitemp won't be able to write a file called
"/var/log/temperature" if there's already a directory there as indicated
in your message to the digitemp list.

Making a directory there and setting up the permissions such that user
"a" can write to it is a fine idea. But then you'll need to adjust the
command that you put in crontab so that it writes a _file_ in the
temperature directory. eg:
* * * * * /usr/bin/digitemp_DS9097U -a -l /var/log/temperature/digitemplog
