Use the command `tune2fs' with the -c flag. Eg to set from 24 to 500
for /dev/hda2

tune2fs -c 500 /dev/hda2

Check out the date and hwclock commands. To keep the time right one
you've set it you can use the ntp package

Try google.

I recommend you have a look at the debian-reference package. It's got some
really good stuff in it. Also please look at the man pages of the
programs I mention above (eg `man tune2fs').
