In Red Hat, you can use system-config-date on the command line. If that doesn't work, then

cd /etc ; ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST localtime
ntpdate -u 0.us.pool.ntp.org

In Solaris 10,

a) Edit /etc/TIMEZONE
      NOTE: the man page incorrectly states this file is called /etc/timezone
b) Reboot your server with shutdown or init.


Examples
--------
US/Eastern
US/Central
US/Mountain
US/Pacific

For the full list, look in:
      /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/
