Setting time in Windows 98

I am trying to do windows update on a 98 system and when I do, Microsoft's website says my time is out of sync.  There is no time in the lower right hand corner of the taskbar - how do I set the time to sync with a server?

I don't think that Win98 has the time synchronisation from a standard source feature, but if you connect it to say, a Netware network, when you login to the network the time is synchronised from the server.
