Changing TZ on RH Linux

I have a Redhat Linux 4 system running nicely, but I would like to change the default time zone to GMT-5, so that programs like UUCP, Sendmail and pine date stamp the messages correctly. How do I do this?

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham

check for a  TZ=  definition in the rc-scripts in /etc/rc.d,
usually in  /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Thanks for your answer, also I had to install files under the directory /usr/share/zoneinfo to make it all work properly.
