You have had plenty of advice from others about your configuration.  Even 
without GPS references, NTP from the Meinberg installation should work 
correctly under Vista and Windows-7, and likely server 2008 (not tested 
here).  There are some hints and tips here:


including advice about using the Garmin GPS 18/18x LVC and Sure 
Electronics GPS evaluation board to make your own stratum-1 reference.  I 
am on the top floor of a house and find the pickup from modern devices 
indoors is adequate.
