[NBLUG/talk] Changing hardware clock time zone on Debian/Sarge

When I installed Debian/Sarge on one of my computers, I told it that the 
hardware clock was NOT set to Greenwich Mean Time.  Then I set up a cron job 
to automatically sync the clock with an NTP server, and now every time it 
syncs, the clock is set 7 hours in the future.

I suspect that the simplest solution would be to have the hardware clock set 
to GMT, and I know how to re-set it in the BIOS, but I can't figure out how 
to tell Debian/Sarge that I've changed the hardware clock to GMT.  How do I 
do that?

Far duller than a serpent's tooth it is to spend a quiet youth.
