You could use the --time-style option to specify any format you wanted
or you could set LC_TIME=C, which will get you the POSIX locale
format, which is like your latter example.

It's also worth noting that Fedora 7 is no longer supported and has
not recieved any updates for quite some time.  Using it leaves you
exposed to many security bugs.

If you can, please avoid sending HTML to this mailing list.  If this

using a different account would be easiest.  Thanks!
