Check to see if in /etc/init.d you have an ntpdate script.  If so take a look
and see what it looks for and then configure it appropriately and enable it.

You may find that all you need to do is put uk.pool.ntp.org into
/etc/ntp/step-tickers and then run "chkconfig --add ntpdate && chkconfig
ntpdate on".
