I installed Red Hat Linux 9 on IBM Intellistation M Pro. There seems to be slight problem with time. During boot time it shows the bios time but when the system logs on to X mode it offsets the time from UTC to IST(Indian Standard Time). So if Bios time is 5:00 PM and on X windows it shows 10:30 pm IST. I have not set the time to UTC. If I set to UTC then I have problem in Windows since it is dual booting PC. I tried running setup command. I get the screen where time zone configuration option is there but if I select it nothing happens. I won't be able to open the time zone configuration screen. The program seems to be corrupted. I tried to go through many websites and books but no solutions. Since I am novice user pls let me know how can I reinstall or correct that setup package. It is urgent.
Thanks for ur reply. I tried what u have told me to but since my system is dual boot b/w Win2k and Linux my windows date is getting affected and I don't want the date to come on GMT. I want it to come on IST(Indian Standard Time). If I type setup from the terminal I am not able to open Time zone configuration window. Can u pls tell me how can I correct that particular package.
I want to know if we r not running x windows in which we install redhat-config-time then i think setup command leads to time zone configuration which is corrupt can u tell me how can I again install that or troubleshoot it.
