debian is the most laptop-friendly distro i've encountered.  for your lcd
screen just select the resolution that fits your display. in my toshiba lapdog
i only select the 1024x768 lcd res.

the stock debian install recognizes pcmcia and works with 'em. actually u
should never be aware nor make any differentiation between pccard and isa/pci
based nics. if you selected or setup your network during install then your all
setup.  if not goto /etc/network and edit the file "interfaces" to reflect your
network setup.
