Maybe - go to your user/Library/Keychains folder. There may be only one file in that folder (with your user name). Copy that file out of that folder, rename to the exact user name on the other computer. Copy the file to the same folder (you may need to move the existing one to the desktop first). You may need to change permissions on the file so the user (Me) has read/write priveleges. Log out and log back in as the same user. Change your log in password (so the keychain password will also change to the same password). The Password can be changed to the same password if you prefer that one, but different password is a better choice for security.
That should do it. (but might not work- this is security stuff here, and it might not play nicely on another system, but it SHOULD work.
