I'd assume you have vista on the laptop already? There are thousands of sites (at least) with detailed instructions on how to do this. Just google "dual boot vista and Linux" or specifiy Red Hat. You should be able to get lot of info here on the forum by using the search function.

Which version of RedHat are you planning to install?
Just create 2 partitions for Linux.
ext3 - 10-15 GB for /
512 MB - SWAP
Select Manual Partitioning in Partition Section during installation and assign / mount point to ext3 partition. Installer will detect SWAP partition and windows OS itself. Installer will setup dual boot for you.
