Get your clock fixed. NTP is limited to correcting a maximum gain or
loss of something like 42 seconds per day. Your clock exceeds that
limit by an amount that can only be attributed to serious hardware or or
software problems. Windows 2K is generally much better behaved than
that so I would look at the hardware first.
