My systemclock is always one hour more than it shall be.
It doesn't matter that I change it in control-panel (rh 4,3)
Here is a bit of my rc.sysinit. I think that I shall change something in it, but how ???
(I think that the -u is wrong.)

# Set the system clock.
echo -n "Setting clock"

ARC=0
UTC=0
if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/clock ]; then
    . /etc/sysconfig/clock

    # convert old style clock config to new values
    if [ "${CLOCKMODE}" = "GMT" ]; then
          UTC=true
    elif [ "${CLOCKMODE}" = "ARC" ]; then
          ARC=true
    fi
fi

CLOCKFLAGS="-a"
if [ $UTC = "true" ]; then
    CLOCKFLAGS="$CLOCKFLAGS -u";
    echo -n " (utc)"
fi
if [ $ARC = "true" ]; then
    CLOCKFLAGS="$CLOCKFLAGS -A";
    echo -n " (arc)"
fi
echo -n ": "
clock $CLOCKFLAGS

date# Set the system clock.
echo -n "Setting clock"

ARC=0
UTC=0
if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/clock ]; then
    . /etc/sysconfig/clock

    # convert old style clock config to new values
    if [ "${CLOCKMODE}" = "GMT" ]; then
          UTC=true
    elif [ "${CLOCKMODE}" = "ARC" ]; then
          ARC=true
    fi
fi

CLOCKFLAGS="-a"
if [ $UTC = "true" ]; then
    CLOCKFLAGS="$CLOCKFLAGS -u";
    echo -n " (utc)"
fi
if [ $ARC = "true" ]; then
    CLOCKFLAGS="$CLOCKFLAGS -A";
    echo -n " (arc)"
fi
echo -n ": "
clock $CLOCKFLAGS
