I managed to install RHEL5 on my laptop
before you go TOO FAR
the old RHEL5 is not a good choice for a laptop
and is it the very VERY old rhel5.0 or the current 5.10
( the CURRENT in the older legacy rhel5 is RHEL5.10 )
with the CURRENT redhat offering is RHEL 6.5 and RHEL 7.0 is in TESTING
Redhat is primarily a SEVER operating system
there is no real laptop support
it is a "well it ALSO might run on " support
there are a ton of things MISSING that laptops DO NEED
like -wireless support
multimedia support -- it is not there
do you REALLY NEED redhat ?
and do you REALLY !!! need ( as in it is a MUST 100% MUST use) the older RHEL5 ????
and if you DO NEED it
you do need to BUY the REQUIRED support contract !
RHEL is not really free
you NEED to buy the mandatory support contract
a 1 year standard workstation license it $299 per YEAR
there are FREE clones
CentOS 5.10 -- the OLD legacy version 5
CentOS 6.5 the current
