What should one do when booting Ubuntu gets the Busybox CLI screen?

I just installed Hardy alpha6 on my Dell Inspiron E1505 / 6400 laptop
(2 gHz Intel DuoCore2, 2 GB RAM, ATI X1400 graphics). I can get
through the Hardy installation just fine, but upon first boot I get
the boxybox cli. I tried adding the parameter "ircpoll" to the kernel
line in grub, but this did not help.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
