After having set timeconfig to EST, I find that upon bootup,
it sets itself for one day previous to the actual date.

While I can fix this manually every time I need to reboot
(not often), it's a bit of a pain.

Are your sure your hardware clock has the right date? To check the
date on hardware clock, use /sbin/hwclock (/sbin/hwclock -u if you
have chosen "Hardware clock set to GMT"). To set the hardware clock
from the OS clock, use /sbin/hwclock -w (sbin/hwclock -wu if you have
chosen "Hardware clock set to GMT"). Read hwclock manual page and/or
Clock Mini-HOWTO for mor information
