SuSe 9.0 Clock is wacked

I just installed SuSe 9.0 Pro yesterday and everytime I login the clock is wrong. The hour is always wrong. For instance, it says 23:58 right now, when it's 11:58. Seems like it's off by 12 hours. Sometimes it's off by 4, 5, or 2 hours. I'm in Arizona and I have the timezone set correctly. Any ideas? It's not the battery. When I boot into WinXP the clock is always correct.

Is Suse setup to use UTC or localtime. I believe the correct file to check this in would be /etc/rc.conf.
