I'm not sure how it works (or whether it does)

But, under w2k there is a time service which uses sntp, and syncs off 
the domain controller

Have a read of windows knowledge base article 224799 and 223184

Please if you can confirm whether or not it works, can you let the list 
(and me) know :)

On my w2k client the service was running by default, but I'm using a 
"net time" in the login script as well
