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 http://debian.o-hand.com/ 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.
