I'll help you though I'm working for Meinberg, not for Hopf ;-)

This is not a problem of ntpd, but a problem of AppArmor which comes with
SUSE Linux and is enabled by default in SUSE 10.2.
For a first test you can stop AppArmor and see whether ntpd then works
If AppArmor shall be used it must be configured to allow access to the
refclock for ntpd:
Yast2 -> Novell AppArmor -> Edit Profile
Select profile /usr/sbin/ntpd
Add entry: /dev/???
# where ??? must be the device /dev/hopfclock0 points to
Mark allow for: Read, Write, Link
This generates a new entry:
Please note the symbolic links (e.g. /dev/hopfclock0) are also created new
after every reboot. If this doesn't appear to happen you must create an
udev rule for this.
