I am having a strange problem with 2 commands: date and clock.
When I installed Linux the first time from redhat 4 , I think
I choose the localtime to be US/Central (I'm in Houston).
However when I use the date command, I could see that in fact
I was in the EST timezone. So after a while, I discover that
I have to change the link in /etc/localtime to point to
<path>/CST (Right now I cannot remember the path but I am
sure the linke work as I can more on localtime and get
something). The problem with that is that the time reported
by the date command is now one hour off. Strangely enough,
the time printed by the clock command is exact.

I read the man page but that didn't help me.
Anyone has a solution for this ? I must be overlooking
something pretty basic here.
Thanks in advance.
