The person doing the install may not know what the clock is currently set

Yes, this would help tremendously!

Showing both would help a lot e.g.

You selected %Z as local time zone.
Local time is: %T %Z
UTC time is: %T UTC
Is this what you expected?

Please bypass this screen if the user selected UTC as local time.

I prefer to run my systems with UTC and a login group with :setenv=TZ=Foo/Bar,...: This avoids trouble with daylight saving and servers spread over multiple timezones.
