	If you're directly connected to your DSL modem, then the IP 
address of your NTP server changes every time you re-connect.  Each 
time that happens, you need to quit and restart ntpd.

	If you use a DSL router, then every time you reconnect and the 
router gets a new IP address, you need to delete all your ntpd 
associations and then re-make them, or you can just stop and restart 

	These are known issues.
