    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
