To change your time, look at the date command. However, your question seems to be concerning your timezone correct? If so, this is how:

1. cd /usr/share/zoneinfo
2. ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/<time zone you wish to have> /etc/localtime


I haven't done this in slackware, but I believe the files and paths are the same.

You can change this by running "timeconfig" as root.
