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! :)
