im not sure how MS handles the clocks, but in linux /etc/localtime is your time zone info, i think if oyu set it to UTC then it will be fine (it doesent matter if you live in that time zone, all it emans is linux wont try and set your clock to your timezone (it acts as if your hardware clock if the UTC time), localtime should be a symlink to /share/zoneinfo/whatever (if its not then just copy the curect file form /share/zoneinfo into /etc/localtime

Yeah, I've had this problem. I didn't have the time zones set properly in Linux. Whenever I booted in to windows I'd be 6 hours off. Or maybe I had set it to use UTC.... Anyways, there's a couple things to look at in both windows and in Linux.
