Time zone setting


Hi,

I have a server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 2.1 (Panama) and is located in California, USA.

I am trying to set the timezone to PST and I selected US/Pacific from the timezone configuration window. But the server time always stays an hour ahead of the actual time.

Can anyone help me out in this matter ?
