Angry clock keeps going forward one hour every reboot.

I am using RH7.2 and everytime i reboot my computer the clock goes forward 1 hour! i have checked the GMT and daylight saving etc and its all ok. I checked my bios clock and thats ok aswell. i can adjust it manually but of course i get clock skew probs.

ideas please?

p.s when i say forward one hour every reboot i mean if i rebooted three times it would go forward 3 hours.

You should NOT check GMT. Most don't.

Choose the correct time zone +/- #.

i am a user of redhat (at work i have to unfortunatly) i use KDE as the desktop env, as kde users will know right clicking over the clock gives the option of adjusting time and date. if i change it from GMT to no timezone it doesnt make any difference as it just changes back again. is there some other way of doing it?
