Yes, you can add a PPS clock to the NTP configuration via the GUI.

When you don't have a DVD, you can use a boot cd and install from the
network, or you can boot from the network when you have a PXE server
running.  To get that running is of course more difficult.

It is not bad...
And there are other distributions available that may be doing even more.
