Any of them will...pick one. And be sure your hardware is supported under Linux.

You don't say what kind of hardware you're installing on, but try http://www.google.com for tutorials on getting things loaded. And since you have the enterprise linux, you can always call RedHat for support.

If that is your only requirement, I'd say you want the latest and greatest. (And I'd also ask what made you choose RHEL for this purpose rather than the newbie-friendly Ubuntu or one of its offspring.)

SuSE is widely used and supported. RHEL enterprise on a laptop won't give you much, and actually not be the best use of your hardware. You've got a better chance of CentOS, Ubuntu, or OpenSuSE being able to support laptop-specific hardware, than you do of RHEL, which is geared towards 'real' servers.
