Cambodia Coordinate System UTM ZONE 48

I went to ArcCatalog to set up a brand new map to create for water sampling, villages, topography, hydrology in Cambodia. There is nothing in the drop down to pick for UTM Zone 48. The GPS people and the people in the field have determined this is what they want to use. Please help me figure all I need and where it is to begin this. I see in the ESRI data set something called UTM grid.lyr, but that does not look like what I need. I need to define the system and bring in their GPS points.

Mapping Center Answer:

I suspect you amight be looking in the wrong place -- the UTM N Zone 48 coordinate system is in this folder:

Predefined -> Projected coordinate systems -> UTM -> WGS 1984

If you scroll down, you will find the "WGS 1984 UTM Zone 48N" coordinate system listed.
