# RPM pykickstart-0.98-1.fc7

According to "commands/timezone.py" the FC3 timezone kickstart commands takes
the following argument: --isUtc.  However, I believe that format for the
timezone command is not valid until FC-5.  

However, according anaconda- (FC3) ... --utc is the only
acceptable format.

    def doTimezone(self, id, args):
    (args, extra) = isys.getopt(args, '',
        [ 'utc' ])

    isUtc = 0

    for n in args:
        (str, arg) = n
        if str == '--utc':
        isUtc = 1

It appears that the --isUtc format wasn't accepted until FC5

    def doTimezone(self, id, args):
        KickstartHandlers.doTimezone(self, args)
        dict = self.ksdata.timezone

    id.instClass.setTimezoneInfo(id, dict["timezone"], dict["isUtc"])
