I loaded ESXi and a FreeBSD 8.0 guest last night and this morning it is
still keeping time OK without any changes to loader.conf.

I am using vSphere to manage, but I see even the standard version
requires licensing in the amount of $795. Is there a free management
software, or better yet, a way to manage via Linux? That's definitely
something I like about VMware Server, that I can manage via a browser. I
have not had any major problems with VMware Server 2.0 all running on
CentOS 5.x hosts.
