I don't have a gui installed

I don't quite understand the "date" command options

Thanks

date --set "Jul 22 1980 13:00:00"


or something like it. i would have suggested "man date" but, looking through it, it probably wouldn't have helped. basically, type "date" and see the result. you can pretty much copy the format, changing the values you want. or, if you have internet access, ntp isn't blocked by firewalls, and you have your timezone correctly set, as root type "/usr/sbin/ntpdate time.nist.gov". this will automatically set the correct time on your machine. =)

hope this helps.
