redhat 9.0 randomly resets time


i've had a hard time figuring out how to search for the answer to why my redhat 9.0 server (running dns, email, and web) seems to randomly reset its time and date (four hours behind EST). i can reset the time but it always seems to change to some other setting within a few hours. i have checked the time zone setting and enabled and disabled the network time protocol provided by redhat from hitting properties on the gnome/xwindows desktop (yes, i'm ashamed to say i still have a gui on the server). i've looked at the cron files and don't see anything there. i've used webmin to synchronize the time to NIST and synchronize the hardware and system time. from the command line i have tried, hwclock --systohc

i appoligize if this has been asked and answered. i have tried to search at this site and google this but the terms are so generic (time reset, etc) that i just can't make a good search. anybody know where i can look for the answer?

NTPD enabled / set hardware clock to Universal Time

configuring NTPD and setting the hardware clock to Universal Time appears to have fixed this problem. My only question is how to switch form the default key code to an alternative key code?

what logs / processes to monitor for resetting system time?

what logs and what processes should i monitor to determine why my network server is resetting its time? i have updated to fedora core 2 and have caused this problem again. the computer is regularly (within in hour of correction) reseting the system clock by four hours (instead of three which i am guessing is related to local daylight time saving being in effect). i have looked at the post related to adjtimex but those symptoms seem to be small changer over a longer period of time.
