Pesonally I think Mandrake Linux is the easiest Linux, but I'm not very sure it comes with a 65bits version.
Myself I used to have SuSe Linux 7.0 Pro, and it had no problem detecting NTFS partitions, but I couldn't install on them...it used its own standards
I needen 3 differnt partitions for SuSe Linux..I think one for boot, one for virtual memory/pagefile and one for the files
Good luck with Linux, it really is an awesome OS!
