Here, I have the perfect idea, that I got @ 4A this morning in bed.
Instead of GMT 0 or GMI-8 or anything, let's default it to something
like "Please select your timezone...", which then disappears when
someone selects the drop down menu. This way we don't show preference to
any one zone, prevent ppl from just hitting "Next >" and getting the
wrong zone, and can wait on the more elaborate country/language2zone
PS. Should we also add a section on there for setting up NTP, like, just
a "ReactOS can automatically determine the correct time by querying an
NTP server, select "Settings..." to set this up or change the defaults"
under the "Time" part of "Date and Time" ?
