Here are a few paths you can use to install CDH4. My preferred one is path
A. You'd need to install Linux on your laptop.

Also, if you are only kicking the tires you can download the quickstart VM
which has CDH and Cloudera Manager pre-installed on it. If you are using
the quickstart VM, you don't need to install Linux on your laptop. You can
just install VMWare, VirtualBox or KVM and then download the appropriate VM

Good luck and do let us know if you have any further questions.
