how about this (below)?
I use Debian/GNU Linux version 2.2;
Linux server 2.2.17 #1 Sun Jun 25 09:24:41 EST 2000 i586 unknown
DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #59 from Bob Proulx <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Wanting to SYNCHRONIZE YOUR SYSTEM CLOCK periodically? If you
think your system clock gathers or loses a few extra seconds
each day, you're probably looking for "ntp" which queries
several "network time protocol" servers, and sets your system
apt-get install ntp ntp-simple ntp-doc ntpdate
then browse /usr/share/doc/ntp-doc/html for info.
