Hi Dimitris,
Version "6.0 for Mac OS X PowerPC (32-bit) (April 20, 2007)" returns
the integral unevaluated.
By the way, what's the obsession with HoldForm? You can just type this
in as
   Integrate[Sqrt[(1 - x)/((x - 2)*(x^2 - 2*x + 3))], {x, 1, 2}]
and it will return the result (or not) right away, without using
ReleaseHold.
Roman.
