Reading of RTC

Can you please give me some info during system initialization?

1. Which file does the reading of RTC to set the system time?

   In redhat, i have seen that the RTC is set from the script 
   /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit. But my MPC /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit does
   not seem to do anything like that:(

2. How does the kernel interprets the time read from the RTC?
   Is it interpreted as UTC or the local time?? Or is it configurable??

I am running denx kernel 2.4.20

Dreams are free, but you get soaked on the connect time.
