Im a post doctoral researcher and I use xntpd to sync the time between 4 pcs. I know xntpd is now out dated but my time server pc uses GPS time obtained via a off the shelf GPS card and ariel. The card is old and the system is using xntpd, so I am reluctant to upgrade. What I need to do is to get xntpd to work on fedora 3 as I need my laptop as a system control computer and I need its time to be in sync with the other machines. Is there way of getting xntpd as an rpm for fedora or does it come pre installed. When I type xntpd in the terminal, it cant find it. Will ntp work fine and can it pull the time for the older xntpd program.

Any help would be great.
