So it doesn't hang at the same point all the time?  How reproducible
is this?
It has happened twice. I've tried modifying the Sheevaplug root FS with OpenRD client kernel instead, but failed so far.

I installed on the OpenRD-Client a few weeks ago without any problems.
Do you have an A0 as well?

Can you describe that clock problem some more?
Everytime I have started the box it's time is 1954 something. When running the Debian installer, some validation of the busybox package fails because of this.
When Googling for the problem I found the solution was to exit to shell and install and run ntpdate

iirc SD is not initialized by the kernel yet.
