Hmm, I used tzconfig to set my timezone to US/Central, and it worked
fine when daylight savings rolled around.

(Unfortunately, rebooting to Win95 will screw it up.  Win95 will
notice the time change and reset the *hardware* clock for you without
asking -- thought it does at least tell you about it.)

Moral -- don't reboot to Win95.
