I really appologize for asking this here, but here is as close as I could get. Most people only*regard rhel/centos as server OS, and most bloggers will only install ubuntu on their laptops
I know the "if one Linux runs, others will probably run after it" rule. Thing is, Gentoo is super bleeding edge, and Ubuntu with patches and unofficial drivers is again bleeding edge, and that's not giving me a "cool feeling" rhel5 (is it what, almost one year old already OMG) is probably going to run!
Greatly appreciating any first hand impressions
PS: I will check my email every 12 hours or so, so throw whatever you've got at me
Thanks guys and best regards

to be honest, why you ask on the FEDORA-LAPTOP list to run a Laptop on
"connatural" Distribution and NOT on the lists owner?
First, I have no experience with that laptop BUT if ONE linux runs on
it, most of the also do so, too.
If there is a Gentoo and/or Kubuntu works (with all kind of embemmed
Hardware?!) then I'm pretty sure that a RHEL
5.1 (which is based on
Fedora Core 6 afaik) will also run ...
Just my five cents ...
