What are the specs of the laptop?  that might have a great deal to do
with what distro would be best for it.

I would suggest running Debian and the unstable branch of it as odd as
that might sound.  It has many ham related packages ready to install
including TLF and there is a relatively active group of Debian users who
are also hams.  If you have a broad band connection installing over the
Net is preferred actually and you only need a small CD to get started.

another way would be to get the ham focused Knoppix bootable CD and try
out Linux without installing it to your HD.
