Hello, I have a multi-boot system. Which currently includes both breezy 
and dapper. I just noticed that during a breezy boot my hardware clock is 
being updated...

So I looked around a bit and found the files:
/etc/default/rcS
/etc/rcS.d/S50hwclock.sh alias:/etc/init.d/hwclock.sh
/usr/share/doc/util-linux/README.Debian.hwclock.gz 

Which give me a few ideas about the problem but not a solution...

I do like the fact that the hardware clock is used to initialize the
system clock. And it's great that the system time is then saved back into
the hardware clock on shutdown... But I don't want either my hardware
clock nor my system clock to be automatically updated by any external time
server... (IE if my hardware clock was set 15 minutes fast when I boot,
then I expect my system clock to remain 15 minutes fast until I manually
change it. [I want my PC's time to be the same as my watch which {when I
can find it} I keep synchronized to my employers clock...])

Can anyone suggest a way to prevent kubuntu from messing with MY local
time anymore???[breezy] And how to ensure that [dapper and higher] never
does???
