If I understand what you're asking (forgive me if I misunderstood), you 
need to create a file in the mymodules directory and call it __init__.py 
(even if you don't put anything in this file).  This tells Python that 
it is a package containing modules.  Then, in your program myprogram.py, 
you can say import mymodule1
Then it shouldn't matter what computer you are on; the script should run.
