Hi and welcome
The problem is, that the laptop hardware is brandnew but the OS is from Mai 2007.
So this rhel4.5 doesnt know the chipset.
In theory and if you have bought a RedHat support contract, then there might be the possibility of a backport.
But in reality: Wont happen.
I guess RedHat would just point to the latest rhel6.3.
And imho: Rightly so. Rhel4.5 has reached End-Of-Life.
If you really have need for such an ancient OS, then your only chance is to run it in a VM.
What is your need/usecase? Maybe we can help there.You must always face the curtain with a bow.

Thanks for d reply.
I don't hv RedHat support contract and want to install a monitoring software on RHEL4.5 coz it will be supported on it only.
Could you plz tell me wt is d difference between RHEL 4.5 and 5.5.

For differences between the redhat enterprise versions, read the Technical and Release Notes here
Quite a lot, as you can see.
If that monitoring software supports only rhel4.5 then it is also deprecated.
What is the name of it?
FYI, there is CentOS, which is a free RedHat clone.
Basically RedHat without the commercial support.
My suggestion would be to use CentOS 6.3 and either look for an up-to-date version or replacement of that monitoring software.
Other than that: RedHat/CentOS are enterprise distributions, geared towards use on server hardware.
A laptop is maybe not the best environment for them.
Which brings me back to VMs :PYou must always face the curtain with a bow.
