Clock problem.
I have windows98 and Mdk9.2 installed ,and these clockes somehow 4 hours different.
But if I adjust clock then computer clock is changed so I can not fix this problem.
Can I just change hour without effecting computer clock?

Had the same problem.
But I can't remember what I did to fix it.
Do you have (rightclick)->timezone local timezone ?

Yes ,I have that.

right click -> Adjust date and time.
I use America/New York (and I am in denmark)

And everything seems to work fine. Mails get my localtime.
(Do you have your "location" there ? - which I don't think is correct)

go to Mandrake Control Center->system->time & date. adjust your clock to the correct time, then set it to UTC time zone & apply. answer "no" when it asks if your use GMT time.

I have a similar problem. I also dual boot with Windows, and the problem is that for some reason the two clocks always differ. For instance, if I adjust the time in Windows to, say, 8PM (before 7PM), then Mandrake will change its clock too, and vice versa. Very annoying. Thus, either I have the right time in Windows, either in Mandrake, I can't have the right time in both of them at the same time.
Has this something to do with the BIOS clock? My BIOS clock has the right time, though.
