I'm a latecomer to this thread, but I went back and read the whole
thing, and my WinXP VMWare Server guest is still way off - more than
an hour.

I turned off the VMWare time sync, and also used the control panel to
turn off its time sync (wasn't working anyway - errors on every
effort), installed meinberg's ntp and ntp sync service, and the time
is still off by more than an hour.

I'm not sure what more I need to do to get this working right.

I am running the 164 kernel - have been since about five minutes after
I installed it....
