The machine may be set up to dual-boot into Windows.  I know that Win95
can't handle the hardware clock and localtime being in different
timezones.  (Me, I spend most of my time in Linux, so I set the hardware
clock to UTC and just subtract 5 or 6 hours when I'm in Windows,
depending on the time of year.  This may not be an acceptable solution
for everyone, though.)
