aptosid keeps resetting my bios clock 4 hrs ahead dammit & it screws the clocks on other os's/partitions.

please tell me how to fix it.

I would guess you didn't pick your timezone when you booted the live system to install aptosid.

I'm also going to guess the solution now is to use hwclock with --localtime to tell it that it should be keeping your clock in localtime (and not UTC).

I think all you need to do is set your system clock to the right time (i.e. so the kde clock or output of the date command) looks right and then run:
      Code:
hwclock -w --localtime

Which will push the system clock into the hardware clock in localtime and update your /etc/adjtime file appropriately so that the system now knows it is using localtime.

If this alone isn't enough then you might need to also rebuild your initramfs with:
      Code:
update-initramfs -u
