Have a question, not a big issue but curious. I ordered a Ubuntu CD and thought I'd try it to see if I wanted to change OS. I played the CD and when I exited and went back to Vista, I noticed that my computer clock was 6 hours off. I reset the clock. Later on, I did the CD again and once again the clock was reset to 6 hours off. Anyone have any ideas as to why running the Ubuntu CD would change the computer clock setting?

Thanks

I guess that is because Ubuntu uses GMT instead of local time. If you have installed Ubuntu and Vista in dual boot mode, then you can set location in Ubuntu and it will keep correct time.

Well, slap me silly, that certainly makes sense. I should've thought of that. I haven't dual booted yet, still playing around.

Hey, I appreciate the quick response.

Have a good day.
