Clock problems


I know this sounds lame, but this is just bugging the hell out of me. I have a computer with Windows 2000 Pro on my 80GB primary hard drive. Red Hat 9 is installed on my secondary, but while performance isnt' an issue, my clocks are. Both Windows and RH9 have the same time zone selected and when I recheck the time through a server, both OSs give the correct time in return. However, when ever I load RH9, it sets the clock 5 hours behind the actual time. So when I load 2000Pro, it adjusts by setting itself 5 hours fast. Someone please help me with this until I can get a seperate computer for each OS!

My guess is that you have the wrong time zone set. Check your location settings and see if the computer thinks that it is in the same time zone as you are in,

Did that. Both OS's are set in the correct (and same) time zone

Ok, I am no guru but I have another idea. During the installation it asks if your clock is set to GMT - in fact the Debian install adds (recommended).

Have you set your hardware clock to local time and then told Linux that it is GMT? Are you five hours from GMT at wherever you are?
