| Am running 5.0.2 and 6 months ago started using xntpd to keep my time

| is out by 1 hour if I continue to update in this way.
| Cant find anyway around this in the SCO resources or anywhere else.

NTP daemons keep UNIX time, not local time. This is seconds since The
Epoch, defined as midnight January 1st, 1970 GMT. Your kernel keeps
that time too, NOT local time.
Local time is displayed by commands like /bin/ls by applying the offset
in your TZ environment,
Read the timezone(F) man page. Note that the DST rules for the United
States are used by default. Try altering the sample shown in that man
page for the Cook Islands.
