Hey Jerry,

I am willing to take your word that you are having problems.

I just got a box working running NTP.  It is keeping time 
extremely accurately.  I am running FreeBSD on an older
computer.  It's possible to get microsecond accuracy on an
old 486, if you have a GPS antenna.  The operating 
system is important.  I recommend FreeBSD.  

I am putting together a How To to install NTP on FreeBSD.
It will be ready in a day or so.  Let me know if you are

So, I recommend you grab an old 486, load it with FreeBSD
(http://www.US-Webmasters.com/FreeBSD/Install/) and install
