Linux Date setting

1. Date command not setting date

I have a machine running FreeBSD 4.2 and am attempting to set the date
but the command is not working.  After I type the command, the date I
entered does get echoed back to me but then I check the date and it is
still the same old invalid date that it was before and not what I just
attempted to change it to.  Any suggestions?
