How do I change the timezone on a RHEL5 system? I'm reading the instructions here - http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-linux-unix-change-setup-timezone-tz-variable/
But they seem very bold (altering the /etc/localtime file).
Is this an acceptable practice (steps from link below):
Generic procedure to change timezone Change directory to /etc # cd /etc Create a symlink to file localtime: # ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST localtime
