   - When I set my timezone to 'Europe/Zurich', I get a clock which is 2 hours
   in advance. I think this is caused by the assumption of the system
   (kernel?), that my system clock is set to Greenwich Mean Time (although I
   unchecked that option during the installation). Instead it is Central
   Europe Time (1 hour plus) and Daylight Saving Time (plus another hour). For
   the time being I set my time zone to 'Iceland' which seems to do the trick
   so far. (This whole thing never presented a problem to my trusty old 7100
   running MkLinux DR3...)


Was this ever explained? It is a nit, but an annoying nit. I know there
is a knob for this somewhere, but i haven't found it yet.
