The desktop and laptop in the previous message each have Windows XP on them,
and are set for dual boot. On the desktop, because the time ends up being
correct after the reboot (but not during), switching back and forth with
windows always shows the correct time on each system.

On the laptop, with the correct time in Linux, switching to Windows shows the
correct time. But each round trip loses 7 hours on both Linux and Windows. It
means that some 'new' files can show up as older than previous files. This can
create havoc, including, I suppose, even data loss.

Neither computer has a /etc/adjtime file. There is no boot.getclock in 11.1
(apparently handled through boot.clock stop). chkconfig shows boot.getclock is
'on.' The installation was clean and new from the offical release DVD iso.

I never had a problem switching between Linux and Windows before. Users, new
or old, should not have to change time settings manually with each reboot, nor
be concerned with esoteric patches to boot procedures. Upon its official
release, a new OS should not break things that have been working for ages. If
two different groups are involved, they need to work together.
