The Intel chipset may be a problem with RH AS4 , I would consider using RH AS5 or CentOS 5 instead.
Do you need a server distro for a laptop?

I hear that ubuntu 7 is good with laptops i.e good support for wireless , video and codecs , you might also want to consider FC7 when it is released next week.

You can get the ubuntu cd for free is downloading is a problem

You are right , but if you used a lightweight desktop environment like XFCE you could get away with it or perhaps add more RAM.
