You say crossover in the title - do you have a crossover ethernet cable? If so you can plug the 64-bit Windows machine directly to the 32-bit one, but you need to enable ICS on the 64-bit machine. The connection speed will be limited to the 32-bit machine network interface. It will still be adequate for internet browsing even at 10 or 100Mbps.

Google:

windows 7 ICS

and you will find several relevant links to this forum, a youtube howto video etc., etc.
