Is it possible?


I have an older Dell Inspirion that has Windows XP home. I recently installed a slave HDD, and installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS as a duel boot, Windows on the master, Ubuntu on the slave. Problem is, the computer isn't connected to the internet, so it obviously can't download or install updates, apps, games, nothing. Is there a way I can manually download updates or at least some of the games using my laptop and install them on my desktop?
