Hmm, I don't know which timezone BST is, but if the problem you describe is 
the one where windows expects the hardware clock to be set to local time and 
linux expects it's set to UTC, it can be solved by 
modifying /etc/default/rcS.

If indeed this is the problem then there's a line in that file 'UTC=yes'. 
Change that to 'UTC=no' and the linux clock should play nice with windows.
