Ok I went to ntp.org and Installed the nt port of ntpd and I am having
this issue. I have the file "ntp.conf" located in c:\winnt\ but event
viewer is complaining

getconfig: Couldn't open <C:\WINNT\ntp.conf>

I have tried recycling the service but it still complains every time I
do. I also tried putting it in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc and it
does the same thing. Any suggestions?
