Time setting back 5 hours


Sorry to make a new thread while I have a question out still but:
I boot into KDE and set the time to the correct time, but when I reboot the time is set by 5 hours, no matter what I set the time to!

go into your BIOS and see if the time that is incorrect is the time that is set in the BIOS.... if so correct it in there ...

Hmmm... BIOS is correct!

However, I *think* I might know the reason it is doing this, earlier. I issued the command "date -u" which must've set something about UTC time, and seeing as my time is being set back 5 hours, and I am 5 hours offset of UTC, this is a very interesting correlation.
