Thanks Mikkel :) Added that to the registry. My only reason for using
XP is some graphics intensive gaming, so doesn't matter much whether
certain apps likes that or not.

So after all this, my hardware clock is set to UTC. And both windows
and Fedora show the correct time for my time zone (with DST). Now only
the next DST change will tell whether everything is just right.

Thank you all for the help. ^_^
