Hello,
how does W2K store the time zone-daylight savings time?

My problem: I have several windows systems on my PC. Time zone is Berlin
(GMT+1). If I set automatically adjust for daylight savings for all
systems, each one will increase/decrease the computer time in
March/October - leading to a wrong computer time.

I want my main system to adjust automatically. However, I want the other
system to be in MET/daylight savings time (GMT+2) as well. Otherwise the
time stamps on my NTFS systems will be correctly translated to local time
in my main system (GMT+2) and one hour younger (GMT+1) on the others.

The time zone list does not include MET/daylight savings time - only MET.

Is it impossible to switch manually to MET/daylight savings time without
the automatic adjustment at the beginnen and end of hte daylight savings
time?

Thanks. If I translate the first article correctly to W2K, it appears that
I cannot manually set the daylight savings time in W2K. The binary
TZI-subkey of a time-zone apparently contains the beginning and end date
of the daylight-savings time. Presumably these dates are evaluated only if
"automatic..." is checked.

That's probably true. Why not have each OS set it's clock to some NTP
server?
