I would go with bare.i. Although technically you should choose the acpi version my toshiba 5105 (bios 1.2) freezes on boot whever i try to run the acpi kernel. On the other hand you could just install the acpi kernel and at boot pass the parameter acpi=off if something is not working or if it freezes on boot.
