wrong timezone in system tray


I am using Fedora 4 on dell inspiron 600m. I am in NewYork TimeZone. Surprisingly my timezone as displayed in systray changes itself after a while my system is up(Tokyo or Russia) . Also, sometimes when I start my console, it displays command prompt as kathmandu.
When I issue date command, it shows correct timezone also I tried to change timezone using /etc/localtime but it displays wrong timezone
Any idea what is going on?

If your hardwareclock is wrong you will need to correct it in your BIOS.

First check and set the current system date and time.

# date

# date -s 'Wed May 28 11:35:00 EST 2003'

Then sync your hardware clock with the system time.

# hwclock --show

# hwclock --systohc
