OS linux 2.4
/etc/sysconfig/clock file has following information

and when i take zdump
# zdump -v US/Eastern |grep 2007
US/Eastern Sun Mar 11 06:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 01:59:59 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000

Maybe I'm misreading your question, but those dates you listed from your zdump output are the correct new dates for DST.
