Re: [PLUG] silly silly question

Setting the system date:

if you are connected to the internet try:
	rdate time-b.nist.gov (Only works if you have the rdate package

	rdate will sync your computer with a remote time server

if you want to set your clock by hand use:
	date 042513252001
	date mon day hour min year

after setting your system date you might want to set your system clock
to match the system date

hwclock --systohc 

this will set the hardware clock on your system
