Nope, not dual booting, see below. :|

Darn the system time strayed over night. One thing I
failed to mention is that freebsd is running on a
virtual machine. The system it is runing on is Windows
2003, the time and all that system are correct. I
turned on ntpd because for some strange reason the
date and time were still not in keeping with the
system time, or so I thought. I'ld have to
re-investigate that to be sure. Over the weekend I'll
stop the ntpd and see what happens to the time when
Monday rolls around.
