Time on the server? Or the time you see elsewhere in the system like Date Created, Last Updated etc? – Ashish Patel Nov 20 '10 at 15:57

By default, SharePoint will use the server time. So if you are not in the same time zone as the server this is the expected behavior.

You can set up your own time zone for your site:

Site Actions > Site Settings > Site Administration > Regional Settings
