program to set time

Which program can do this as my time keeps getting set back half an hour and I don't want to change it in my bios everytime I start up. It would be even better if it checks time via the internet (that's most precise isn't it?)

I'm running fluxbox for if it might be in it cause I haven't found it.

Thanks for the help!

Not sure. I only search for packages with ntp in their names. Don't use any myself.

I use ntpdate but if it isn't installed you could try rdate.
