Synching time with a Windows 98 PC

By shanna ·
When I attempt to synchronize one of my Windows 98 PCs to the time on my Windows XP Pro PC using "net time \\servername /set /yes" the sync. completes correctly. The only problem I see is that the format of the date sync. section for the response is dd/m/yy, rather than the local format of m/dd/yy that I have set on the local Windows 98 computer. Other 98 PCs connected to this workgroup respond with the correct date format.

I have made sure the regional settings are identical between the 98 PCs, and the O/S's were installed using identical procedures and software.

What could be causing the different format response from the server I'm synching to?
