I have recently updated my PowerMac G4 to OS X 10.1 and now my Time is all messed up. It tells the correct time, however it is in 24 hour format (military time). I try to fix this by using the Date and Time preferences, however, it always seems to eventually happen. I am also using a network time server. Anyone know how to fix this?

I just upgraded as well. And had the same problem.
I used "help" and found the anwser in the international system panel. you will find a time tab. there you can change from a 24 hour to a 12 hour clock.

I find that sometimes my time will completely reset back to 199, at some hour that is not the right one...any suggestions or answers?

Your battery is dead. i think there is a little built in battery (not your main) one. That keeps track of things like the time. I know the iMacs/towers have them. Mine on my iMac died a while ago.. the clock would allways get reset. I set my controld panals so my clock would sync up with that appe servers... it would just fix the clock every few houres... so.. didnt worrie about replaceing the battery.
