timezone fedora 12

In the panel at the top of the screen it shows the time of day - perhaps at the international date line. Is there a setting somewhere that allows me to inform the system of my time zone?

Tried "info timezone" - drew a blank. Don't know where to look

Any help would be appreciated.

Time zone change

In a graphical login, select from the menu:
System -> Administration -> Date & Time
You will either need to be logged in as the root user or know the root user password.

Once the dialog box has opened, click on the Time Zone tab and change it from there.
