With a dual boot system it is often suggested to set the clock to local time. If, on the otherhand, GNU/Linux is the only operating system installed then using GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) is recommended as the standard approach for Unix.

To change the timezone use the tzconfig command. You also have to change the line in /etc/default/rcS which states the CMOS clock configuration.
