I would go with RH 8 or 9 to start with. Good luck.
    I have to totally agree here. I just did Red Hat 8.0 on my IBM Thinkpad A21M this past weekend. It was like butter......It works perfectly...... No Errors out of box. IT configured Video, DVD Drive (although I haven't tried a DVD as of yet) and the 3COM Type II card I have installed.

    I look forward to spending more time with the Penguin...

    I just put RH 8.0 on my laptop the other day (wich sucks now that I am downlaoding 9 and have to do it all over again), the only problem that I am running into is I cant configure the battery moniter...other then that just make sure you know your video card type and what type of moniter you have and the moniter config shouldnt be a problem.

    I installed RH 8 on my compaq n600c, it went with only a single hitch, the touchpad wouldnt work. Since I normally use a usb mouse with my laptop anyway it wasnt a big deal for me, although at one point I did get it working using the drivers created for the synaptics touchpad by an independent group....
