system clock problems


my system clock appears to be screwed up. see this screenshot:

http://coffeegeek.net/clock-setting.gif

i have my clock set to the right time (in the Adjust Date/Time from KDE) but the KDE applet clock is displaying UTC time.

i seem to remember at some point setting something indicating whether my cpu clock was set to local time or utc. i took a guess. is that hte problem? if so, where can i change that setting?

btw this is a gentoo 2004.2 box

thanks for the help,

~ Justin

just looks to me like the applet is too small, nd there aint enough space for the 2 to fit one, so its being ommited ?
