	well, maybe the way i had the pool listed, 0.us., 1.us., &c was 
	wrong.  i'll know more after i shutdown -r my ns1 machine.  

	same thing here on "tao", my desktop.  i just exec'd the 
	/usr/sbin/ntpd on my server and no errors.  are there any
	diagnostics that i can use?  (don't make the read the man page 
	until i know what the heck i'm doing!!)


	ps: to the entire list:: my heart is beating again.  it was
	stalled for a couple hours while i finished the 7.2 stuff ;-)

	--pps: i've done this scores of times, yes, but had it failed,
	i'd be getting ready to blow my brains out with a pea shooter....
