The way I finally got mine working in a stable setup was to use USB for
the NMEA statements and put the PPS signal over a pin on the parallel
port (using shm_splc2 to get the PPS from there to ntpd) since I didn't
have an available serial port.

This way I also don't need another power source.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
