Is /etc/sysconfig/clock really essential?  I just have /etc/localtime pointing 
to the right timezone and never had any problem.  I don't even have 
/etc/sysconfig/clock on my servers.

I was about to install  the system-config-date (package that provides system-
config-time) in order to see if indeed it creates /etc/sysconfig/clock but yum 
tells me I need 48 more packages to satisfy dependencies. I said no
