re: linux on laptop
Can you be more specific on what occurs w/ RedHat? When you write "it shuts down", do you mean the laptop actually powers off or does the install freeze?
If the install freezes or hardlocks, at what precise point are you in the install?
Also, what boot options are you using when you begin the install process? Have you tried turning specific features off/on, e.g. noprobe nousb nofirewire, etc...
