System clock is running too fast on RH 9


For some reason one of my Redhat 9 servers has a problem with the system clock - it appears to be running a little over twice as fast as it should do and I have no idea why! I tried turning off ntpd completely, then blanking out /etc/adjtime (i.e. "> /etc/adjtime"), then synchronising with the h/w clock as per some instructions I found, but still the same.

Does this point to a hardware problem? I don't really know what information to post, so here's some stuff I think might be relevant:

Kernel is 2.4.21-lufs-030704

and /etc/adjtime contained

-0.565171 1073406333 0.000000

before I wiped it. Oh and my hardware clock doesn't seem to have a problem.

Any ideas as to whats going on/how to fix it much appreciated.
