[lug] Linux clock loses time

Hey All,

I inherited a Dell Inspiron 4100 running Redhat Linux
7.3 (version 2.4.18-3).  When the machine is running
Linux it loses about 5 minutes every 8 hours of
runtime.  When the machine is off the RTC keeps time
perfectly.  I verified this by setting it and then
shutting down Linux.  When I booted several days later
the RTC shown at the BIOS level and also when Linux
booted was right on.  

Does anyone have an idea of why this might be?

Thanks, Dan
