double click the little clock/calander on the left hand side of the
bar at the bottom of the screen?  :-)

The easiset, most reliable thing for you to do, before diving deeper
into the assundry issues with VMs and time keeping (and clock drift is
a big Xen problem, but it is NOT a Xen ONLY problem) is use NTP.

The simplest fix I found to fix clock drift issues in VMs, be it on
Xen or VMWare was to set up an NTP server that synced to some outside
NTP source and have all my VMs then sync via NTPd to my private time
server.  This kept them all up to date.
