I have Ubuntu server 9.10 running through VMware Fusion 2.0.6 on my Mac OSX 10.5 host. My linux guest VM's time keep being out of sync. I believe I have VMware tools installed because after running the following on linux in the terminal, I get:

$vmware-toolbox-cmd timesync status

What should I do to make sure my time is always in sync?

The current recommendation by VMware is to run NTP on the guest.
