I have a Windows SBS 2003 server and the Windows Time service is disabled.  I want to enable it so that all workstations will sync the time from the server.  How do I enable the service?

How to configure the Server to sync time. For the clients you can set it through GPO. Go to your policy then Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Windows Time Service. You can configure your clients to sync with the server from there.
