Dear sir,
I'm a student from Asia.
My OS is Ubuntu12.04amd64
I dowloaded the NTP4.2.6p5 package and installed it with following commands:
make install"
Installation seems successful. No error is reported. But there still some other question.

First :
when I typed in "services ntpd start",OS shows "unrecognized service",but udp port 123 is active.Before this,I tried to run"sudo ntpd",and succeeded.
qige at MyPC:~$ sudo netstat -tlunp|grep ntp
udp        0      0*                           27743/ntpd      
udp        0      0 *                           27743/ntpd      
udp        0      0   *                           27743/ntpd      
udp6       0      0 ::1:123                 :::*                                27743/ntpd      
udp6       0      0 fe80::8ea9:82ff:fe7:123 :::*                                27743/ntpd      
udp6       0      0 :::123                  :::*                                27743/ntpd  

Second question:
I want to configure my NTP server,but there is no such a file"ntp.conf" under the path ./etc/. I tried to searched it,but still not found. 
Can you tell me why?
I'm looking forward to your reply.
Please forgive my poor English.
Thank you.
