Setting up the CMOS clock/etc/init.d/boot.d/S09boot.clock: line 53: /sbin/hwclock: cannot execute binary file
/etc/init.d/boot.d/S09boot.clock: line 55: /sbin/hwclock: cannot execute binary file

"/etc/init.d/boot.d/S09boot.clock: line 55: /sbin/hwclock: cannot execute binary file"

For some reason running the program /sbin/hwclock does not work. Check the permissions and ownership of /sbin/hwclock. They should be:
755 root root

If that is not the problem then reinstall hwclock. On SuSE hwclock comes in package util-linux. You can check which Mandrake package provides hwclock with:
rpm -q --whatprovides /sbin/hwclock

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
