Type "date".
You should see

"Fri Nov 13, <wrong time> HST 2006"
To change the time type(as an example):

date -s 10:55
Then you'll see the correct time:

"Fri Nov 13, 10:55:17 HST 2006"
5. Then if you want to set the hardware(BIOS) clock so the system will keep the time when it reboots type:

clock -w

or

setclock
