Changing System Date Format to DD/MM/YY On RHEL3?


I have a window based app that requires the system date to be of the format DD/MM/YY. I have managed to install this app on Linux using wine. On Windows, we had something called Regional Settings in the Control Panel wherein I could change the system date format. Is there any equivalent in RHEL3 for changing the system date format?

Right click on the clock
Select: Date & Time Format...
Select: Time & Dates
Select: Short date format:

You can also access that from Control Center / Regional & Accessibility.

I checked it out. I right clicked the clock. There was Adjust Date & Time. I selected that and there was no short date format. it only says use network time protocol. Further, i dont have Regional & Accessibility. I only have Accessibility which deals with Keyboard and Mouse. Any specific RPMS i need to install?
