    First find out just how hung it is. I'm guessing this is RedHat 8.0. Then the time/date configuration is in X, right? When it's hung, try pressing CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to a text mode terminal. If it works, it's not the system that's hung, but just RedHat's installer, which is far more preferrable.
