I don't think a Windows partition can affect the clock. However, I have a
Windows 2000 partition which I never use so maybe it provides an
explanation? This machine came with 25 GB Window$, 15 GB SuSE so I only use
Windows for media storage, which I can then access from SuSE. Ideally, that
Window$ partition should have not existed. It is too risky to play with
protitions-manipulating software, I believe. Plenty to be lost potentially.
