    Check that you have an ntp daemon running (ps -e |grep ntpd).
    Have a look at /var/log/ntpd to see if it reports any problems.
    Out of curiosity, does your motherboard use an Nvidia chipset? They're known to have problems with keeping time when running a Linux 2.6 kernel (as I found out the hard way).

    In that case, start ntpd on a command line as root. If it doesn't give any errors, then it should have started just fine, and you can tail /var/log/ntpd to check its progress.

    If it complains about the time difference exceeding the sanity limit, try
    Code:
    ntpd -g
    to have it ignore the sanity limit.
