Setting the time on Slackware 10.1


Hi Folks,

Please forgive the stupid question, but, here goes.
I've installed Slackware 10.1, everything works great. Because I've got an old PC I chose XFce as my wm.
I think I messed up setting my time when I installed Slack.
How do you change the time on Slackware 10.1 running Xfce? I went to the calendar dialogue box on the lower right hand portion of the screen on the task bar, it will allow me to change the date, but, not the time.
Is there a command prompt for this?
Thank you.
