Discrepancy with the clock for Fedora and Windows XP


I currently have a dual-boot set up on my computer with Fedora 8 and Windows XP. Fedora 8 is correctly displaying the time in my time zone (Pacific Time; Vancouver). However, when I boot Windows, I find it shows me UTC although I have the time zone set to UTC-7:00.

If I adjust the Windows clock to the time in my time zone, and then boot up Fedora, I get UTC-2:00.

How would I fix this?

Thank you

I take it you're using network time instead of hardware clock (bios clock setting).
