I've not used RHEL 5 in some time. Is it possible that you use RHEL 6?
Also, if at all possible, 64-bit version. For a test cluster, you can
create a minimal install on 1GB of RAM, so if you have at least 4GB or
RAM on your laptop, you should be fine.

Under RHEL6, you need to enable the High-Availability Add-on groups in
RHN. Not sure if they are called the same on RHEL 5, it's been too long
since I last used it to remember.
