[techtalk] System time vs Resolved Time

Hi All,

Another Question!  On Madrake 6.1 if I type the date command I see the
proper time.  Netscape, on the other hand resolves the time exactly 5
hours off (GMT, I guess).

My question is where in the system can this be changed?

Better yet, where can I find the notation that denotes (Canada/Eastern)

Would the file in question be /etc/timezone and if so we are back to the
middle question.

Thanks to all who respond,
