Can I transfer a program from a ubuntu drive to another ubuntu drive?
Both drives are the sane and both have the same version of Ubuntu Linux(9.04)

As ubuntu puts its libraries and it's shared files into specific places then yes, in theory, you can. Simply copy and paste the program's files dependencies and it's own files onto the new drive.

Be careful you don't enter dependency hell though, it may just be worth it to download the package in question with synaptic on the other drive
