Right time with Solaris on a mac book pro

For anyone installing Solaris on a mac book pro, you'll find the time is incorrect once you boot up. The real time clock on the mac is set to gmt while Solaris is expecting it to be the local time (like a pc normally has.) All you have to do is run:

rtc -z GMT
to tell Solaris that the real time clock is gmt and all will be fixed (you only have to do this once, Solaris then stores the new time zone in a file.)
