Looking for a LapTop to that supports Linux (Red Hat 4 or Suse 9)

I've decided that I want to run Red Hat Linux or Suse 9 workstation on a Laptop. However, I searching for a good laptop that will provided me with wireless support, USB 2.0 support and networking support.

I'm strongly considering a Dell Laptop or HP Laptop. Does any have any other suggestions?

I would NOT recommend an HP zv5430us.
The USB ports will not work under any OS that
does not come directly from HP.

It says so on the flyer that HP put

I have also verified, myself, that suse 9.2 will not enable the usb ports.
