Heh. I think 1) you don't realize you're saying "you don't need ntpd"
to, and 2) you didn't notice the hostname of the system in some of the
debugging output (ntp1.us.grundclock.com). :)
24MB physmem gone before the kernel even starts seems a little much. I
wonder if some amount of that is being eaten up by a video frame buffer
that maybe isn't needed on a headless system?
