Yes and no...

If the program was compiled statically, meaning all required libraries are within the executable, then it is likely you can just copy it over. However, since it's not very likely this is so, there'll be a bit more work involved. As root, type:
ldd file
Where file is the program you want to copy over. ldd will tell you what libs it uses when it is ran, you can then try copying those as well and then try running it from the other system, however I don't know if this'll work very well unless the 2 boxes are very close in setup and hardware.

Also depends on how in depth the program is, what it was compiled with, and kernel options as well as GCC options on each box.

Cool

LOL, my bad

In Red Hat 9 it has 4 workspaces......... "Workspace Switcher"

And if you right click on the program (ie mozilla) all it says is "Put on all workspaces" but there is no option to send it to just one workstation.

Ah, I see

In that case it would be window manager specific, some of them have that option some don't. If you right click in the titlebar of the application (the place at the top where you can minimize and such) there might be an option for that.

Cool
