We've had a Trimble Acutime 2000 running since 2005, at two separate sites.

As I recall we just plugged it in, ran the (Windows) configuration tool that
came on the CD with it to check that it had a lock and that it was running
in time sync mode, then connected up a Linux box, configured in the driver,
and off it went.
