Yes, the 1.3b wrap image is the right one to use for ALIX. I've just
added a little JS to the beta download page to help people choose.

The kernel in the wrap images has fewer options/drivers in it (things
that aren't needed on WRAP/ALIX) and is thus smaller. Also, the wrap
image has some extra features (making the on-board button behave as a
configuration reset button when pressed during boot; code to change
sisX interface names to vrX if needed). I've been thinking about
merging all the different images into one - which would sacrifice
about 2.5 MB of RAM on the embedded platforms though.
