    the first thing to do is to check the hardware compatibility list on red hat's site to see how compatible your laptop is.

    laptops are notorious for being a pita, it could be a long road ahead

    Just begin to install Redhat... the installation process will help you to partition you hardrive and the bootloader will help you to choose which os to boot from when you start you computer. You XP partition will be a outgreyed partition when its time to partition you hardrive, make sure that you dont touch that partition...

    do this in your terminal and post the output here:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    and also do this:

    Code:
    /sbin/lsmod
    and post it in here as well
