	It is, many times over.  For future reference a quick check at will save everyone a lot of time,
including you.  Also, this is a general fbsd question, and doesn't really
belong on the -isp list, although I'm not as anal about this as Jordan.  I
actually think it's kind of nice to have a "knowledgable and friendly"
list where a little digression is not a bad thing.  I actually refer
potential converts to the -isp list for a feel of how freebsd is used for
"real work," but I digress. :)

	su to root, /stand/sysintall, Configure, Time Zone.  When you're
done, you also might want to touch /etc/wall_cmos_clock to make sure it's
synched, and check out the man pages for adjkerntz.

	This does lead me to a question I've been meaning to ask though..
why doesn't date work as advertised?  I know we have /stand/sysinstall,
but it would be nice if date did this function since the man pages say
it's 'posed to. :)

Good luck,
