It is VERY possible for the logon script to change the local time settings
of the WinNT/2K/XP client that is logging on. By default, only
Administrators and Power Users are allowed to change the system time.
If you want this to be enabled for normal users then here is how to do

Go to Control Panel, launch "Local Security Settings"
Now, you will find under:
	Security Settings->Local Policiees->User Rights Assignement
an entry called:
	Change the System Time
double-click on this entry and add "YOUR_DOMAIN/Domain Users", or if you
TRUST everyone, add "Everyone".

This does it.
