Recently I received a new TimeZone file for Australia and it's 2000 timezone

I unzipped the file and replaced the current australasia file with the one
in the tz2000f.tar.gz
file I was sent.

However, the machine has not converted to Daylight Savings time yet.
Even after rebooting the machine.

Could you give me an idea on how to change the date of the machine to
reflect daylight
savings ?

I did alter it manually 'date MMDDHHMIYYYY' and this worked for a little
while, but
when I rebooted the machine it reverted back to Non Daylight savings time.

Thankyou in advance.
