Can I remote desktop from Windows 7 64bit Pro to Windows XP 32bit Pro?

Yes, but only Professional edition of XP and above.

You have to enable Remote Desktop through Control Panel > System > Remote Desktop.

From there you should be set to go.

If you need any extra help, Microsoft have an article about it here.

If your machine is not running a Professional edition of XP, you can still use a large list of applications such as VNC, Logmein or Teamviewer - just to name a few.

Yes, you may get a warning. You can safely ignore this. Don't be scared to try it. Still operates on same terminal services. Vista/7 just have newer versions and seem to 'talk' better, but XP x86 Pro will still work as a host.
