I'll add that my ntpd is not working.  Failure began with the update of
the kernel to 2.6.11-1.14_FC3, but was fine under 2.6.10-1.770_FC3.
Interesting part is that the startup is declaring that it is OK, but a
check of the running processes finds no instance of ntpd.  The status
declares that it is dead but pid file exists.

BTW, this is on a ThinkPad (Pentium M 1.6 w/ 1G RAM)....
