oh forgot the mention if your others PC are linux box, set the ntp server start up and /etc/ntpd.conf or /etc/ntp.conf set you time server IP inside the config file, they will sync the time.

For M$ windows, I know that there is/are some tools already build in for time sync in Win2K or WinXP, but not in Win98se or WinME.

but i put my server ip address inside the ntp.conf file and restart the pc.  
seems like the time still remain the same.  it doesn't sync with the server time.

any other steps require after i put the server ip inside the ntp.conf file?
