Lyle,

Your registry hack has been working well for me; I hope it will work
on Nov. 4, but I'm not curious enough to change the date to test it
beforehand. I'm posting to note that on my W2K Pro OS, some updates
caused me to have CurrentControlSet, ControlSet001 and ControlSet002
in the registry (at least I don't remember putting them there). The
combinations of TimeZoneInformation caused some problems, but when the
information was applied to all three registry locations everything
started working properly again.

Checkout http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914387?wp_ml=0

It has a download that will provide a GUI to edit daylight saving time zones
on windows 2000. Much easer then regedit. Follow the instructions on page 15
including the part of change your time zone then changing it back after
saving the edits made by the program.

Thanks for the information. I'll try that if things don't go smoothly
with the existing registry hack.

Lyle,

on Nov. 4, but I'm not curious enough to change the date to test it
beforehand.
It looks as though simply changing:
>: Data:
:00000000 00 00 0a 00 05 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
to 00000000 00 00 0b 00 01 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

and
>: Data:
:00000000 00 00 04 00 01 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
to 00000000 00 00 03 00 01 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

might do the trick.

Lyle,

beforehand.

It looks as though simply changing:
: Data:
:00000000 00 00 0a 00 05 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

to 00000000 00 00 0b 00 01 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

and
: Data:
:00000000 00 00 04 00 01 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

to 00000000 00 00 03 00 01 00 02 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

might do the trick.
According to lyle's insight and determination, that might change the
time on the first Sunday in March at 2:00 a.m. I used '03 00 02 00
02' instead of '03 00 01 00 02' in the second string to attempt to get
the second Sunday in March at 2:00 a.m. My system is coming up with
the correct time using the registry hack so far provided the change is
made identically in all existing control sets.
