    You don;t want to that. The network under network system change between those system a little. Just write down your network settings from one computer to the other and then manually put those settings in it.

    I'll only be using one of the computers at once though.. It's for school and the school set up our profiles and told me to just type in the password on my other computer but I can't remember what it is, and the only person authorized to tell me it won't be back for 2 months...

    I am not aware of any substantial difference in 802.1x profiles between SL and Lion other than Lion nixing the manual creation in favor of configuration profiles, if you know of any major differences please share. Lion can still take in a profile through network setup, so I would think this can be accomplished.

    OP, you can do this through Terminal.

    Code:
    man networksetup
    There are options specifically for 8021x profile manipulation. One being

    Code:
    -export8021xProfiles
    and the converse

    Code:
    -import 8021xProfiles
    I haven't personally tested whether Lion can take an SL profile, but given the facilities are the same it may work.
