With the way the clock drift is happening, it sounds like a time
zone setting problem. Both Linux and Windows XP will slowly adjust
the clock to match the NTP server. Now, if the time zone setting is
wrong, the system will gain/lose time as it runs, until it matches.
Running the AtomTime95 program under windows would probably make
things worse by fighting with the NTP program windows is already
running. Making sure that the time zone is the same under both
Windows and Linux, making sure it is the correct time zone, and not
using AtomTime95 should fix the problem.
