This raises an interesting point. Really, one needs to run ntpdate as
root. However, normally, I use ppp as myself:
myrddin:~> alias demon
demon='ppp -background demon ; ping demon-du'
And I couldn't find any way to get ntpdate running as root without a
small setuid wrapper? Am I barking up the wrong tree?
