BUG: check your ntpd, it may be dead



I suspect quite a few people are affected by this problem, but not all
are aware of it, ntpd being a less "visible" service:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=154759

So, everyone, if you're running FC3 or FC2, please check your ntpd
service and see if it's still running fine. Perhaps poke at it a little
bit, restart the service and see if it comes up, even restart the whole
machine (if possible) and see if ntpd is launched automatically.

The whole thing seems to be a crapshoot, on some systems (typically new
2+GHz AthlonXP or Pentium M) ntpd is running fine, on some other systems
(mostly PIII/800 Coppermine in my experience) it dies instantly. Maybe,
if enough people report success/failure, a pattern will emerge.
