you can use the 'hwclock' command to set / reset / retrieve the physical 
hardware clock timestamp. And you can use what Marcelo already pointed 
out to set a timezone if you like ( cp or ln -s a physical zone file 
from /usr/share/zoneinfo/ to /etc/localtime on the machine ).

Also, sanity check /etc/sysconfig/clock
