I think this is due to the fact that OS X uses UTC as the underlying time, then modifies it with regard to your time zone. Windows XP uses the time-zone-specific time as the underlying time, and gets horribly confused when the hardware clock reports UTC time.

There's a registry hack to make Windows run under UTC, but you'll have to google it.

It's a very well known issue with Bootcamp. It's happened with my iMac since I first installed XP on it. Tho, it wasn't having the issue for a little while before I deleted my XP partition.

Set them both to adjust time automatically and it should be fine. If it's not, do it manually.. fixes it right up.
