depends, it your system set to the international time?, or is it set to your local time?

for local time: next time you reboot just go into the BIOS and change it .. or you can do it without reboot, read the wiki, its good your you

if your system is set to the international time, then its a problem with /etc/localtime with should be either a symlink or a file that contains data for your local time zone, the files are kept in /use/share/zoneinfo (note: they could be kept elsewhere, normally they are in the share directory) ... theres a program you could use to select the a time zone its "tzselect" ... just copy the correct file from the zoneinfo directory to /etc/localtime
