That will copy the correct new zone data file to /etc/localtime which is 
used as the default for things that don't export their own TZ setting. 
You'll also need to restart any long-running programs that care about 
local time.  Logging in and out will fix the desktop display. Restart 
cron with 'service crond restart'.
