Unhappy Hardware Clock sync?

Well, I probably shouldn't have done this, but wanted linux on my work computer real bad.....
So I had it running on pc at home, pulled the hard drive out and took it to work and booted it and ran interactive setup and let it find new hardware. everything seemed to be ok until I shut the pc down
or reboot the pc.
It hangs up on shut down 'Syncing hardware clock to system'
just sits their and does nothing, so I have to do a hard reboot everytime (which makes me cringe everytime!).

Also, OS is Red Hat 7.2 kernel ver:2.4.7-10
have tried all I can think of, any help would be great!

Try running `timeconfig` or `linuxconf` and reset the time there. Redhat should come with both.

Good luck
