From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; RocNet Roc'ing 
The Net)

Line 10 of the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd says:
. /etc/rc.d/functions.
It SHOULD say:
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
(It is missing the .../rc.d/... part

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download the NEW ntpd that was just announced.
2. Perform rpm -ivh ntp*
3. execute /etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd start. (or status) see what happens
4. Look at what I described above, edit, rerun, all is good now.

Actual Results:  It fixed the problem

You mustn't have gotten the 6.2 version, maybe you got the 7.0 version?  I 
just verified that that 6.2 version says:

# Source function library.
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
Comment 2 bmeyer 2001-05-03 09:20:39 EDT
That's quite possible. I did not notice an NTP for 6.2 on the CD. II will check 
Comment 3 Preston Brown 2001-05-03 12:09:32 EDT
remember, it is "xntp3" on 6.2, "ntp" on 7.0 and later.
