It sounds like you either have your system clock set to GMT time
but not your linux system, or the other way around.  Look in
/etc/init.d/boot for a line at the top that defines the variable
GMT.  If this is set to "" (a null string), then linux thinks
your system clock is not set to GMT time.  If it is, you need
to change this definition to be "-u".  That should fix it on the
next boot up.  To fix it ASAP, run the "clock -a" command with
the correct flag (e.g. if GMT should be defined as -u, run clock
-a -u -- if its already defined as -u and you changed it to a
null string, run clock -a).

I hope that solves it for you.  If it doesn't, I don't know
what's wrong.

Good luck.
