    I very much doubt Red Hat 9 will ever install on that machine. Red Hat 9 is quite legacy now, and it is not supported by Red Hat anymore. For a new laptop like that, you need a very recent distro so that everything will work smoothly : Ubuntu Edgy, Mandriva 2007, etc.

    Solaris 10 is getting a little old, but perhaps it would work.
