Wait ... this wouldn't adjust the clock, and ignore UTC setting
echo "Europe/Amsterdam" > /var/db/zoneinfo
touch /etc/wall_cmos_clock # if clock is set to local time
The documentation is not wrong.
"Skip the initial question about adjusting the clock if not set to UTC"
so it just skips the UTC question
