Yes it is possible, please review the Installation Guides for CentOS 3 and 4 to see if your laptop meets the specs.


Basically for the CentOS-3 installation you will want at least 128-MB of RAM and for CentOS-4 at least 256-MB of RAM.

Get at least the latest server CD ISO version of which ever you choose, the rest can be installed directly with the use of yum. Choose a mirror location close to where you are and download either the CentOS-3.8-server-i386.iso or the CentOS-4.4.ServerCD-i386.iso
