This workstation is connected to a 3MB broadband. 
Could you please advise where to lookup the
sourc.list?  I have been away from Debian for
sometimes.

# find / -name source.list
No printout

# ls /etc/init.d/
......
nfs-common
ntp-simple

# cat /etc/ntp.conf
......
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift
statsdir /var/log/ntpstats/

statistics loopstats peerstats clockstats
filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable
filegen peerstats file peerstats type day enable
filegen clockstats file clockstats type day enable

server ntp.cuhk.edu.hk
server ntp.debian.org
server pool.ntp.org
server stdtime.gov.hk
