Thanks for your offer. Actually, it's seems to be working now! (this always
happens to me. I think there must be some daemon in my computer palying tricks on
me) The reason I thought it wasn't was that I tried to compare my system time with
that of the ntp server I'm using. I ran xntpdc <server> and typed sysinfo to find a
certain server time, which was about 15 min behind my own. But later I noticed that
two minutes later sysinfo still gave the same server time, so I figured I was looking
at the wrong thing. And then I noticed that my system time was no longer what I had
set it manually to (relative to my stopwatch). So it's all working after all!

Yeah, I agree. It's a pretty cool function though ;)
One question, how does one turn xntpd *off*??? Once you type "xntpd", that's it.
You're stuck with it.
And any ideas while hwclock didn't work earlier, and my clock kept being reset to 1

Thanks for your helpfulness.
