Ask Microsoft if Microsoft XP 32 bit code will run on Microsoft 64 bit systems.
Should work. But, not a good idea.
Why not, be smart and download the cygwin setup.exe and packages specifically built for 64-bit systems and then transer it over to your non-connected 64 bit machine with a flash memory stick of suitable capacity.
Or if you wnat simply swap the internet connect calbe to your 64-bit machine, do the downloading and then restore it.
