I will try Ibex again, but the last attempt alpha5 was not good, as I 
had a black screen and no X login possible but I did not investigate 
more. Sure I will try the beta, but I need a stable up to date release 
to test some new version of OpenERP system. Hardy is I think the best 

I  manage to boot at least the Hardy Live CD with acpi=off noapic 
pnpbios=off irqpoll ! I had network working, so i can update and 
investigate now.

Thanks Nils for your answer.
