how to configure ntp on linux boxes

Hi guys i wanted to know as to how do you configure ntp on linux boxes. I have 4 boxes and all of them are out of stnc. The best thing would be to sync them with a unix box on the network. Kindly let me know the steps involved.
Thanks

It's very easy. One of your servers should sync with an extenar source, like pool.ntp.org, and the others sync internally with this server.
