If you installed the modem on your first pc The second pc is not going to magically see it It is a physical impossibilly for that to happen You have to get another modem and install it on that computer that does not have the modem Unless it is an external modem which was not stated in the question So if it is an external modem connect the modem to the computer that does not detect it and try to install hardware from control panel, and when it asks for the driver browse for the floppy and let it search for it from there I hope that was helpful Enjoy.
