how to copy updates from 1 linux box to another using cli remote serial and usb drive

how to copy updates from 1 linux box to another using cli remote serial and usb drive References I have 2 old pc\'s that I\'m going to remote into using serial port/tcp. The first one is a 32-bit machine that I remoted into serially and couldn\'t get it to connect to the internet for various reasons. I installed 32-bit ubuntu 12.04 and tried to install some deb\'s and packages via the /media/usbdrive with little success. So now I just got my 2nd linux box which is a 64-bit duo-core Dell which I could run the GUI, connect to the internet and download some cool stuff. Now I have the 64-bit machine with 32-bit ubuntu 12.04 installed and I\'m wondering if there\'s an easy way to copy everything from the 64-bit machine to the 32-bit machine using only the remote terminal serial to issue commands and the usb drive to transfer files.
