Why don't you just set up an NTP server on your Samba server and
then point all the WinXP boxes at it. I think it's under "Time"
in the control panel, or if you right-click on the time in the
system tray. By default it syncs off time.windows.com or
something like that.
I am not a Windows person, so I don't know if you can do this
via group policies or whatever.
I use logon scripts for windows clients and add the following:
NET TIME \\pdc_server_name /SET /YES
I use ntpdate from a cron job to poll a stratum 2 time server which
keeps the pdc up to date.
Works well here....
