Description of problem:
When doing a kickstart install of RH73 over an HTTP connection. My ks.cfg file
has timezone entererd WITHOUT --utc, but new files are created which have
date/times 10 hours advanced from the current time. My h/w clock is set to
localtime and after the install, anything created has correct timestamps. My
timezone is GMT +10.00 hrs -- so there seems to be a problem with the
install 'thinking' that my hw clock is set to UTC when I have told it (by
ommission of --utc in timezone entry) that it is NOT.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Create a ks.cfg file -- include timezone entry, but not the '--utc' option, put
ks.cfg onto floppy. Setup install server to install via http method. Begin
install. Look at file timestamps after completion of install.
Tried adjusting time using a shell script to set date -10 hours in %pre section
with an adjustment of +10 hours in %post section -- did not help at all.

The same problem with Red Hat 8.0 and standard install. Some files are 2 hours
in the future. It seems to be timezone difference - here we have GMT+02. And I
receive during startup the message:
Warning: File `sendmail.cf' has modification time in the future (2002-10-06
18:04:50 > 2002-10-06 17:04:10)
make: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
