Removable FAT drive timestamp trouble - timezone inconsistent

Hi, I have a portable USB hard drive with a FAT partition. It was written on a debian etch machine with with UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS.

I am now looking at it on another debian etch machine that also has UTC=no, and the timestamps are 10 hours ahead of what they should be - which is the timezone here, UTC+1000.

Both machines have local timezone hardware clocks, both say so in /etc/default/rcS, both have the same version of debian etch, both are set to UTC+1000. I cannot think of any cause for this timestamp inconsistency.

I suspect a real genius will be needed to sort this one! Cheers!
