- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Well, unless there is a really good reason to use RHEL on your Vaio laptop, I don't recommend it - try Ubuntu or other more up-to-date systems instead which will better support the hardware. My wife has to run RHEL (Fermi Linux) on her Vaio, and it is a real PITA to get to work right, and a lot of the hardware isn't supported. Sony seems to like doing everything in a proprietary manner deliberately so to make installing a lot of open source software very difficult.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

Even I wouldn't recommend installing RHEL 5 on a laptop as my past experince doind the same weren't good at all. Finding the dirvers , compiling is a big hectic task. I faced the problem of installing wireless on my laptop although I found the dirvers on the net but all efforts went in vain as compiling bombarded me with make errors. Dont Install it on lapton unless you don't have a choice.Only if I could understand the man pages
