Now *that* sounds familiar... When I set the
hwclock on my Dell 333P
(386/33 - don't know year or BIOS) from Linux
(using hwclock), it reverted
in BIOS to 1991 on next bootup and forgot all it
knew about its harddrive...
I was able to set everything manually in BIOS
again and the machine
booted, but I haven't tried rebooting since... :-}

Happy new year,
