I got my machine running again by using Kyle McMartin's instructions to
boot into a shell and I removed the hwclock scripts. I also replaced the
battery, as it was completely empty. But these are both tempory hacks
because everytime I access the rtc, e.g. give a date command like 

date -s "04/30/04 21:00"

the systems locks up. So I think it's a problem in the kernel part for
accessing the rtc. To avoid lock ups I removed /dev/rtc so the worst
thing happening is an error message.

Thank you so far.

Kind regards,
