| Truls,
| 1.)  The howto I put together was applicable to RedHat and Fedora Core
| 1, I don't know if the directory structure changed with FC2+. Search for
| the directory "/zoneinfo" on you computer,try => <root># locate
| /zoneinfo . The directory may have moved to /usr/local/zoneinfo. If you
| find it, I would think you could then just adjust the paths in the
| directions. If you can't find it, maybe someone on the list can offer
| some advise.
| 2.)  Any text editor will do.
| 3.)  As Michael already replied, set UTC=false for a dual boot computer.
| Otherwise Unix and Windows fight over setting Daylight Savings Time.

thank you Bob for your advice.  The final solution was to open synaptic
and reinstall tzdata.  Your input made me able to verify that the final
configuration was correct.
