I have tested this some time ago. Works fine on Windows 7, but fails
to switch from/to DST on Vista SP2.

In other words, the user space clock shows the correct local time but the
system does not have and DST information of the local time zone or does
not use such an information.

The other trick is to tell Windows 7 not to jump the the time when summer
hour comes. This is what I have (and local time in the cmos), but I'm not
very happy with it...

When I started Linux this Sunday morning (summer time here was the early
hours of Sunday), Linux was displaying the old time, one hour slow. I had
to play with "rcntp ntptimeset".

Then I booted Windows, and it also displayed the wrong hour, meaning that
the CMOS was not adjusted correctly by Linux (local time). I had to
manually adjust it as well.

On next reboot to Linux, this was showing the correct hour.

So I have to wonder about this trick of telling Windows to use UTC in the cmos.

Linux would get the summer time information correct, as it does on my Linux
only machines. But will Windows do the same, or do I have to adjust it
