>J Carrera, I do not know what you mean by "'write to hardware switch'
to ntpdate".

Sorry, I am on long travel and don't have my linux machine.  As I recall
it is something involving "--hwclock" or something like that.  It may
even be a separate command rather than an ntpdate switch.  Maybe "date
--hwclock"?

At any rate it is a command that writes the system time into the
hardware clock--thus updating the hwclock to the correct current time.
This is useful because system time is set during initial boot to the
hardware clock time.  If the hardware clock is more than 1000 sec off,
ntp will fail when it tries to start, and it does not recover until
manual intervention.
