	I will look some more because I was more or less leaning
that way.

	That system is old enough that the battery could be a
problem. It does still keep the correct time, however after
having been shut off for a few days but the boot order may be
the first thing to go. Generally, I've noticed the clock starts
to slow before the settings also die.

	Again, thanks for a starting point.
