I've had clock problems when running from the optical drive - no idea why....

What do you mean? Booting from CD/DVD? Likely a timezone issue in this case.
If it is the case, we come back again to the same issues:
1) your system considers the HW clock is UTC, but it is localtime. I am not sure you
can change this on a liveCD system (again, switching Windows to UTC would likely
avoid all these kind of issues).
2) timezone issue (I believe you did choose Japan).

As a workaround, you may try to tell your Linux system that timezone is GMT.
It will take the HW clock "as-is", therefore it should be correct (even if *very wrong* in principle).


2 + 2 = 5, for very large values of 2.
