FC6 shows wrong day/date
I have a FC6 install that is set to PST. Today, Feb 13 at 10:45 am PST, when I type "date" it displays "Sat Feb 10 05:00:26 PST 2007"
What do I need to get it to the correct time/day? I have run "system-config-date" and it is set to PST and I have tried unchecking the "UTC" option.

Try setting it directly with the date command, e.g.:
# date 010108302007
The date(1) manpage shows the full format:
date [-u|--utc|--universal] [MMDDhhmm[[CC]YY][.ss]]

Did you try the rdate command?
I'm kind of a newbie but I've used the rdate command to clear up some problems I've had in the past with drifting time clocks ( for me it's usually a dying cmos battery). For example at the command line; I did this:
rdate time.nist.gov <cr>
Give it a shot and see if it works. Good luck!
