Not really. If his hwclock is set to EST, but the OS thinks the hardware 
clock is UTC (/etc/sysconfig/clock, UTC=true), then when it's 2pm local 
time (EST), it will correct -0500 hours, making it 9am.

I'd like to see the output of 'hwclock' and 'date' and figure out what 
time zone everything is set to.
