Slave your system to a trusted Net host using 'netdate' and then set
your CMOS clock from that using 'hwclock'. I have a cron job that
does this nightly; you may wish to run it every 3 or 4 hours. It's
probably due to your SCSI card stealing interrupts that would
otherwise update the clock. You might be able to configure your SCSI
host adapter to use less interrupts or get a bus mastering adapter.
