The one and only true about distributions is that:
"The beaty of distribution is in the eye of the installer"
Having say so, I would probably recommend you sticking to the Red Hat
since you seem to have some experience with it. The Mandrake and SuSE
distros are also
complete and pretty easy to install and configure (lost of tools and
so on). If you like experimenting then both Mandrake and SuSe are
easy to install and to get rid of (if needed). There will be ,
however, not that many differences as compared to RedHat.
If REALLY want to feel the change, try Slackware or Debian.
Also take look at http://www.linux-laptop.net/dell.html where you can
get description of different approaches.
