You are right it's old and I didn't get any reply till now, but 
nevermind. I think I figured out what was the problem in the meantime 
and my Powerbook works just fine again. I activated Time Server 
Synchronisation, which I guess had a failure and when entering date my 
Powerbook said 1.January 1904. I turned it to by hand (console) to an 
future date restarted an guess what my desktop started up normal again. 
Then I could ajust the time manually quite well and everything is 
working fine. .... >Wow, thats an old post! :)
