time issue


this is ridiculous.
My clock is always 1 hour behind...
Using fedora2/kde.
the bios clock is fine.
I have set my time zone for Indianapolis... I live in columbus, OH.
I have set the time manually and rebooted 10 times, its always 1 hour behind and its driving me crazy!
I tried to set the time via: ntpdate 192.43.244.18 (time.nist.gov)
and it is still 1 hour behind. Now, I cant shut off the boot up sync for that server (says it in the scroll by of things starting up)...
This is probably something simple that I am overlooking...
From command line the date command also showes 1 hour behind...
Anyone know how to fix this?

Thus, US and Indiana law create three different time arrangements in the Hoosier State:

1. 76 counties (including state capital Indianapolis) are in the Eastern Time Zone but do not change to Daylight time in April; instead they remain on Standard Time all year long....
