All I wanna do is change the date on the system. It keeps knocking itself back about seven hours. I don't understand the syntax of the date command.

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

What Linux or *nix distro would help me to answer the question correctly.

Many Thanks

Heh, thanks for the response but I managed to figure it out using ntpdate and pointing it to an appropriate server.

Thanks for responding,

Jay
