Using the newest release, Intrepid Ibex, should not be a problem. One thing I have to input regarding this is that iRex says that it doesn't work well with VMware images, but if you're using a linux installation on a real machine you should be fine. When you get to the point where you are adding the apt source line to the sources.list file, check at to see if there's is a new entry for "Intrepid". If not, then just use "Hardy" - there shouldn't be much difference.

Just remember - when in doubt....fiddle around until it works.
