From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010913

Description of problem:
The Date&Time utility (in the KDE Panel) sets bad time zone for
Europe/Prague. It sets the UTC time zone. For example, for Europe/Budapest
it sets the CET time zone, which is correct. This utility also can't set
the MET time zone directly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Slect the Date&Time utility from the KDE panel and set time zone for
Europe/Prague. It sets a UTC time zone for this location.
2. When you type (from console) the command ntpdate ntp.volny.cz, you will
obtain time with one hour less. For example, for Europe/Budapest, the time
zone is set to CET and ntpdate returns correct time for this location.
Budapest have the same time zone as Prague.

Actual Results:  ntpdate returns time with one hour less for time zone

Expected Results:  1. Correct time zone for Europe/Prague
2. Possibility to set the time zone directly (means MET, CET etc.)

Fixed in fedora core 3 (probably also earlier releases).
