If you haven't already, set your time to GMT rather then using
localtime.  This way, the system will perform the daylight saving
automatically, or at least it should.  My slackware systems have done it.

However, after running 'rdate' on your RH system, you need to run the
'setclock' command to set the clock into the hardware.  For more
information, do a lookup for it's manpage.
