How do I change Time Zones??

Post by Chris Placht » Thu, 29 Jan 1998 04:00:00

I recently moved from the East Coast to the West Coast, and obviously
my Linux box moved with me.  I was trying to change my machine time
to use PST rather than EST, but I couldn't figure it out.  When I used
the "date --set" command and specified the Time Zone to be "PST", my
machine automatically added 3 hours to the time (i.e., converted it to
EST).  How do I make my machine a West Coast resident???

Please email me with the response.  Thanks in advance.
