after reboots. You will have to set the date and time once a year when the

*** DISCLAIMER *** The SOFTWARE clock driver may not work correctly with
unsupported PC6300 DOS Versions, such as DOS 3.3 or higher, or non-AT&T DOS
versions. SOFTWARE applications which load into a memory range that
conflicts with the SOFTWARE clock driver may cause unpredictable results. Any
SOFTWARE applications which continue to read the HARDWARE clock instead of the
DOS clock WILL continue to see the wrong date.
