This wouldn't happen to be an install on a Macintosh Quadra 950 would
it?  If so just hit Ctrl-C when you get the message and the system will
continue booting.  After you log in as root go to the init.d directory
and comment out the hwclock lines in hwclock.sh  hwclock is broken for
use on the Quadra 950.
