With a short search of GOOGLE on "GPS Time Card", I got
http://www.truetime.com which apparently makes PCI, ISA and other GPS
boards to use for clocking.  Debian has software in woody/potato that'll
talk to some of these boards.  With Selective Availabilty now removed,
they should be amazingly precise. 

I'm sure they're other places to get these boards.  Just need an antenna
and some software so talk to it, I guess.
