it should be possibly because 64bit can run most 32 bit programs

It should.  Just make sure you set the virtual network adapter to "bridged" (select the actual physical network adapter by name in the list under networking).

I use XP mode at home all the time (Windows 7 Ultimate) to connect to my company SSL VPN which requires 32-bit Windows.  As others have stated, you must have Pro, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows 7 in order to install XP Mode.

I had this problem.  On the VNC program, you need to right-click and run as administrator when you start it in windows 7, even if the user is already an administrator.
You can also right click the program, and go to compatibility and set it to 'Run as administrator' as well

Just to elaborate on jackieman's answer ... XP Mode is a virtual machine - it is just a free*, fully-licensed, preconfigured virtual machine available for Microsoft (* for Pro/Ent/Ult Editions).  It is possible to have an XP virtual machine outside of XP Mode, but you would have to have a valid license/media for XP and install it yourself.
