	My thanks to all of you who have contributed ideas in response
to my questions.  It turns out that the guy who built this system did
a supurb job and put apt-get on it.  ntpd was not resident on the
system, but all I had to do was type apt-get -install ntp.rpm or
something very similar and voila, it was there in no time flat.

	As a Debian user, many things are familiar as this is, after
all, Linux.  It is just a matter of learning the regional dialect.
I didn't know that apt-get existed outside of Debian.
