I think you're getting confused.

The article you mention talks about known issues with the 6.06 Desktop
installer. Dapper (6.06) is now 6.06.1 to indicate that some security
fixes and fixes to the installer are now in the install image you
download. Try downloading 6.06 and you'll see it's automatically 6.06.1
you get.

Knot 3 has nothing to do with Ubuntu Dapper. It's the third unstable
release of Ubuntu 6.10 for people who want to help with testing or just
like messing with their systems.

In short the answer is go ahead and download it and it should be fine.
