If they are using an OS with a decent package management system they
should be able to install NTP using those tools. Here are some, although
certainly not all, specific URLs for pre-packaged versions of NTP:
RPM based OSes (e.g. Fedora, Mandriva, Red Hat, Yellow Dog, etc.):
open OSX's Date and Time system preferences (NTP is apparently
pre-installed on OSX)
The NTP Reference Implementation distribution is available as source
