# as root
unset TZ               # just in case you've accidentally set it
tzconfig               # set the time zone
date 0103143897        # set the internal clock
clock -u -w            # write internal->CMOS
vi /etc/init.d/boot    # set the GMT variable to "-u"

You'll be set.  If you require more accurate (< 1 ms) timekeeping,
install the ntp package.
