On my RH6.0 box, I give the command (as root)
rdate -u time.u.washington.edu
And I'm gonna write a crontab entry to do it automatically every so often.
I am going to guess that time.u talks to an atomic time clock somewhere -
that's how most times are kept. On Windoze platform, there's a shareware
applett called atomtime that does just that.
