Setting Time Zone
- Logged in as root, check which timezone your machine is currently using by executing `date`. You'll see something like Mon 17 Jan 2005 12:15:08 PM PST, PST in this case is the current timezone.
- Change to the directory /usr/share/zoneinfo here you will find a list of time zone regions. Choose the most appropriate region, if you live in Canada or the US this directory is the "America" directory.
- Create a symbolic link from the appropiate timezone to /etc/localtime. Example ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime
- Set the ZONE entry in the file /etc/sysconfig/clock file (e.g. "America/Los_Angeles")
- Set the hardware clock by executing: /sbin/hwclock --systohc
