So assuming today is April 1st, and you want to set the time to 12:35, as root,

 date 04011235

I would be careful changeing the date if you have apps like HP Openview running that generate an alarm associated with a date.  For instance, if you get a alarm bad at one time and you recieve an alarm clear at a time before the alarm bad may cause some problems.

Just a warning.
