What area are you in?

Most places in the US didn't change anything for DST this year. Some
parts of Indiana got even more confused (in the attempt to make the 3
different time handling areas there simpler down to two).

Next year is the big change in the US when the date of DST changes to
be several weeks earlier. Solaris 10 1/2006 has the northamerica zoneinfo
file already updated. Obviously, you'll need patches for the other two
systems to fix it up for next year's change.
