Time update in Kubuntu changes Windows time.
I have a Toshiba laptop dual booting Windows Media and Kubuntu 6.1. If I set my preferences in Kubuntu to automatically update time by the internet my time settings in Windows change by 6 hours. Then when I correct the time in Windows my time changes in Kubuntu by 6 hours the other way. I assume this is related to the time base being UTC. I can prevent this by turning off auto time updates in both OS's but that isn't my question. How are the 2 OS's able to change the time in each other and does that mean that they can change other settings that might be more subtle and perhaps dangerous? I've checked the time in the bios and it remains correct. I posted this in the bug section and was told to post it here. Thanks for your help!
