Ahh, okay. Yeah, in my case, it's a hard-wire ethernet, so except for the normal couple-second wait for link negotiation, it should be just fine. That's why I'd tried -w, to avoid the failures I was later getting from ntpdate.

But, it appears to just crash when I give it a -w. I may fall back to dhclient.

I never did get anything from anyone on pro's or con's of either. Anyone?
