There /may/ be another issue with Windows 2000, in that NTP is producing 
event-log messages about not being able to write ntp.drift.TEMP.  I 
checked the ntp.drift (actually in \WinNT\ in this installation) and it 
didn't have a permissions entry for the ntp account, so I have now changed 
the permissions to all-users, full control.  It's about 30 minutes before 
the next error message is due, so I'll try and check back then....

No, it seems to still want to write to ntp.drift.TEMP rather than 
ntp.drift, so I've started NTP after checking the permissions on 
ntp.drift.  Check back in just over an hour....

Well, now it /is/ writing to ntp.drift.TEMP, but seem to have deleted the 
file ntp.drift.  I don't understand this behaviour.
