Starting in 2007, Daylight Saving Time will be extended by 4 weeks in most United States and Canadian time zones. Daylight Saving Time will begin the second Sunday in March (March 11th), 3 weeks earlier than in past years. Daylight Saving Time will end the first Sunday in November (November 4th), 1 week later than in past years. This change complies with a provision of the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005 and affects all U.S. time zones that observe Daylight Saving Time (DST). In addition to the United States, many countries have adopted or are considering adopting similar DST changes, I.e. Canada.

Details for Novell SUSE Linux platforms are covered in the following documents:
