OT Kind of -- Daylight Savings Time Issues

Yes, I know this is not a computer group, but the old OS groups are pretty much dead and searching online is not getting much....
FYI, this particular computer uses proprietary software programs in an industrial application and cannot be upgraded past Win 2000.
What is the recommended procedure for setting the windows time (bottom right desktop) when the US goes from standard to daylight savings time in March?
Should I change the Windows clock (bottom right corner)? Any times or settings to change in IE6 or OE6? Win2000 and IE6 are both up to "date" as much as possible.
Thanks in advance.
Versions: OE 6.00.2800.2000 IE 6.0,2800.1106 Win 2000 Prof Version 5.0 Build 2195 SP4

I didn't know that W2K wasn't self-updating for DST . Try double-clicking on the time in the toolbar to open it , then manually change it . Try clicking on the date and time icon in control panel , then on the time zone tab in that window . XP has an option to auto-adjust for DST , W2K might too .

There are some 3rd party patches available...I've never had a W2K system so can't say more about it than that...

Obviously, try this on a backup machine first, not the field-deployed one (you _do_ have a backup, right???) :)

It will probably update itself the first Sunday in April (the old DST start date). You can uncheck the auto DST box and then change the time yourself when appropriate.

All, thanks for the tips. Win2000 does automatically update in April. Waiting for that is what I have been doing every year.
I'm leaning more and more toward Apple, Linux - anything but Microsoft. Just bought an 8.1 laptop (the only reason was so that I could replace my printer -- all new printers won't work with 2000 - and that include Epson, Brother, etc. -- none of them have 2000 drivers).
The most maddening thing to have to buy a computer in order to print files from an old machine. 8.1 is supposed to be better than 8.0, but if that's the case, I pity the fool who bought 8.0. 2-3 click tasks on 2000 take both hands and a road map. And, holy smokes, the cursor starts and stops across the screen. And the HP laptop was loaded down with pester-ware. McAffie pops up every 10 minutes with a "warning" to purchase something.
I'm sure someone out there loves 8.1, and my hat's off to you.
My plan is to load it down with software and sail it out on ebay.

Thanks a lot, Paul! This was quick and easy. After I set the new time change dates, I set the clock to 1:59:50am on the current change day and it advanced the time as it should. Then set time and date back to current.
Looks like this program was from 2007. Interesting that Microsoft didn't include a fix for that in an update -- or maybe they had stopped updating 2000 by then and were pushing a new OS.
Thanks again!!!!
