configure NTP on cisco switch

Dear All,
As a part of a technical operation i was asked to configure NTP on the NW core switch.

I dont know how this could be done...i didnt work with switches configuration before so i dont know how this could be done

The switch is Cisco catalyst 3560 , i appreciate your help with detailed steps.

All the commands are ok but you have to connect using Hyper terminal and not though telnet

here is what i did :

I used telnet to connect to the swirch
entered the telnet password (which i defined from the switch web interface)
i typed switch>enable to enter the enter privileged exec mode and add the NTP server
i got no password defined

now i am stuck i dont know what is the next step to enter the enter privileged exec mode
