I know this is a CentOS list, but personally I would go for Fedora 12.
They have done some optimizations for netbooks and you will have get a
lot more functionality due to the drivers included with Fedora 12 vs
CentOS 5 (based on Fedora Core 6).

If you want wireless, Fedora is probably the easiest of the two. Any
specific reasons why you want CentOS on a netbook? More specifically why
you want enterprise Linux on your netbook?
