Assuming both computers have usb ports, use a thunb drive. If not burn it
to a CD or DVD. Are they networked together in some fashion?

Whatever you do, I hope it works, but I have found in my ten years of Linux
dial-up (until last month when I finally got broadband) that using a real
hardware modem is the best way to go.

What happened to that usb modem? Can you swap the winmodem on Ubuntu for
one in another computer? Check out
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16825164005

Here's a review snip:

"Pros: Ubuntu 8.10 recognises this modem by simply plugging it in. It
instantly appears as /dev/ttyACM0. I've owned many modems over several
decades & the performance of this modem is among the best I've seen."

Cost 23 bucks. Save you a lot of headaches.

Yea, thanks Bo, I could swap, but I like to play. It's a good idee,
though, to buy another usb, where did you get it? for 23 $ John H

See link above. That's a link to a 23 dollar modem that works out of the
box with Ubuntu at NewEgg

I've read the review about Neweggs modem, sounds great.
What I did, though, I swapped the usrobotics usbmodem to the ubuntu
computer, no such thing as the reviews of Neweggg Ubuntu keeps
asking questions that I can't answer
Opensuse just accepted it as an old friend.
I am still learning

For a usb modem try typing lsusb in terminal. For pci modem try lspci. It
should show you where the modem is. Won't help with drivers, but at least
you'll see if it's even being detected.

Swapping didn't work out either,the usb modem from opensuse to this
machine with either ubuntu or kubuntu didn/t work either. My problem is
how to identify the modem
