As far as your video hardware is concerned, you're in good shape with an Nvidia card. A lot of laptops use ATI cards instead which would have likely given you grief if you wanted 3D acceleration. As for your main question, there is really no such thing as a distribution that will always work well using Cedega. In my personal experience, Cedega is spotty at best. It will work beautifully for some people on some distributions and not at all for other people on the same distribution.
For example: I have 2 desktops. One is an AMD Athlon XP 2700 with 1GB of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce 5700. At the time it was running Fedora Core and Mandriva. Cedega would not run any games at all.
My second desktop is an AMD64 3200 with 1GB of RAM and a Geforce 6800, also at the time running Fedora Core and Mandriva (both 32-bit). This machine is the one I've had the best luck with running Cedega. It was still unreliable however, as Morrowind and Diablo 2 would crash regularly. All this was tested on version 5.0.1 of Cedega, so they may have improved since then.
In short, your distribution choice doesn't really seem to matter with Cedega. It's just the phase of the moon or your particular hardware configuration it seems. Best of luck.Registered Linux user #270181
