I've been quite happy with Mandrake on my Sony Vaio.  It's a little older than 
yours and all hardware is supported.  I find that Mandrake provides a better 
desktop system than RedHat and better maintenance tools, but otherwise is 
quite similar.  During the install it will easily replace any other OS on 
your drive, if you so choose.
