I had the same clock drift when it was set up with WinDoze, so I doubt
it is SUSE that is at fault.

So ntp will only correct if the drift is less then some value? On
startup it corrects no matter how off the clock is, but after that it
never corrects again. I assumed there was a way to increase the number
of times per day ntp checks with its servers. I guess a cron of ntpdate
evey hour or so is my own choice. Sigh.

Thanks for the info.
