Unhappy Suse 9.2 boot hangs at "setting up cmos clock"

I have a dual boot Suse 9.2 Pro/Windows XP system. A couple of days ago while booting up Susie hung up at "setting up the cmos clock", and never recovered. I reset, went into BIOS reset and verified the time, saved, and joy, it still hangs up at boot, still at "setting up the cmos clock". Windows, however, is working fine; and keeping perfect's weird. Any suggestions?
