Since i'm a Mandriva fan for years, i'd recommend using Mandriva 2006. 
It has a full 64-bit system (including compiler) and i've successfully 
used it for benchmarking gromacs on 64-bits mode. It has also gcc 4.0 
and gcc3.4.3 so you can use one of them in order to get optimal performance.

You'll probalby be happy already with the download version but you can 
also consider the packs which include support.

You're wellcome :-)
