NTP Help

I need help on setting up a Linux timeserver.

I have a mixed network, containg Windows XP home/Pro and a Win98 box.

When I run net time /SETSNTP or Net time they all report that they cannot find a timeserver.

NTPD on the Linux box appears fine, and is updating the Linux box, but the clients just cannot see it.

If I turn on the timeserver support in Samba, it works fine, apart from NTPD then uses localhost to sync the time, ehich is'nt really helpful!

Anyone got any ideas?
