I know this may seem stupid, but................have you checked the CMos battery. I've seen those things do some pretty weird stuff after a couple years. Most use a 2023 battery available just about anywhere.

I thought about that too. Especially since my computer is about 3 years
old. But my date and time and everything are held fine. I'm running
Fedora right now and everything is going fine. So I don't know what to
make of it.


If it weren't for the fact that Fedora runs without problems, I'd have said it was a hardware problem. I have SuSE 9.1 installed on 1 box and 2 laptops, one with x86_64, all running well. This is a truely strange one. It still could be hardware, something that SuSE 9.1 is doing/using that Fedora doesn't.
