[ntp:questions] Please help: Time synchronization

I hope somebody could help me with the following. I'm attempting to use
a GPS signal to regulate a PCs system clock and in turn use this PC as
a 'time server' to keep one or more other specified PCs synchronized.
Please could somebody point me in the right direction as to how I can
begin to achieve this. I am a total newbie to the whole area of time
synchronization and from what reading I have done I am a bit (okay
very!) confused.

My scenario is as follows: I am assuming that (a) all the PCs are
Windows 2000 (b) they are networked together (c) that I have a GPS
signal coming through the serial port of one PC from which I extract
the relevant date/time information, and use to set the system time of
that PC and (d) that I don't have access to any third party time
synchronization tools.

(How -) Can I configure the PCs to synchronize automatically? (How -)
Can I specify which PC is the time server and which are the clients.
(How -) Can I specify how often to synchronize?
