Unhappy time settings changes on each boot

I have reinstalled my Ubuntu Feisty today.I triple boot with Debian Sid,Ubuntu Feisty and Windows XP.Now the problem is after ubuntu configured time and set it properly,if i boot into Windows XP or Debian-their time settings have if i set "UTC" from GNOME time applet option,it shows correct time.but again assuming windows xp is running set as correct time,Debian's time and Ubuntu's time are different there any way can i get correct time set for all the 3 OS`s.Yes.i know that both the Linux uses /etc/init.d/ or /etc/init.d/ scripts to control time settings.but i dont how to resolve this multiple time problem with 3 OS

My understanding is Windows needs the system clock to be set to local time, while linux gives you a choice between local time and UTC. In Debian this is set in /etc/default/rcS. The default is probably


so you probably just need to change that.


clock, time
