setting the localtime is done with a link in /etc

david@slacker:~$ ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 Sep 6 16:25 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Central


just adjust the link to the proper timezone

I think setting the time with the date command should update the system after changing it, but that's just a theory.

You can also run timeconfig as root, its part of the installer that helps you setup your time zone
