From Redhat type :

      date

then enter the CMOS setup by typing :

      Fn F1        (purple lettering on keyboard

Exit setup by typing :

      Esc (key)

Get date by typing at the shell prompt :

       date

and presto the system time has advanced by 2 hours or
whatever your timezone is.

It sounds like an interaction between the kernel and the APM
BIOS - most likely because the kernel is set that
'hardware clock is in GMT'. Change the kernel setting and
try recompiling the kernel.
