Windows 7: Can I dual boot 64bit and 32bit?

Can I dual boot 64bit and 32bit?

G'day Gents,
I have Win7 Home Premium 64 bit upgrade currently installed on my pc, but I am having wireless internet installation problems. TP-Link WN851N adapter (No Win 7 drivers availabe, but it works fine with Linux Ubuntu 9.14).

My ethernet connection works fine.

So as a process of elimination (I am on holidays and heve to much spare time lol) I want to install Win 7 32bit in dual boot with Win 7 64 bit.
Can it be done?
