HP compaq CQ60-104TU with RedHat Linux and Windows VISTA

I'm planning to buy HP COMPAQ laptop model CQ60-104TU.
I'm planning to have a dual boot , Susie Linux and WINDOWS VISTA.

Did anybody try having a dual boot in the above model or faced any problem doing so?

Kindly suggest me some models where i can have dual boot.

PS: in the title, the flavour of Linux is wrongly typed

i run suse 11 and vista on a dell laptop. i havent had an hp but i know that there are a lot of tools for hp laptops. what i can mention about the dual booting vista and linux is that if you remove linux and try to reboot, you have to use the repair tool and jump through some hoops to make vista bootable again. but as far as them co-existing, mine works fine.
