Setting Time

My clock is all screwed up. I can't run the gui because it doesn't work. I'm using RH9.
When I run this command, /usr/bin/redhat-config-date
I get back this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/", line 48, in ?
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/", line 190, in __init__
self.timezonePage = timezone_gui.timezonePage()
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/", line 50, in __init__ = TimezoneMap(zonetab, self.default, map=path)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/", line 139, in __init__
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/", line 180, in setCurrent
