Just a head's up for folks wanting to convert ntp servers to Fedora-7.
It seems like the new kernel (2.6.21-1.3194) has quite a bit of clock
jitter.  The two machines I've installed it on are now both showing
regular excursions to +/- 250ms.  This is on two machines that used to
be rock solid with single-digit millisecond offsets under the two
previous Fedora versions.  As if that weren't enough, the distributed
version of ntpd (ntp-4.2.4p0-2.fc7) will periodically step and then
hang.  Folks running ntp servers might want to avoid upgrading till
this gets sorted out.
