Yes and no.  Verizon does not support tethering the Droid to a computer and does not provide a data plan for doing so.  However, there are ways that it can be done from a technical standpoint.

My Blackberry Curve works as a tether to my laptop.  You have to sign up for the service though.  I think it's about $30.

The droid X does wifi tether for sure, the droid 2 and droid incredible possibly. Any other droid on android os 2.2 can usb tether, including the original droid. The downside is, there is an additional monthly charge. There may be apps in the market that can also enable this feature but I would research them carefully as they may violate something in your contract or get verizon mad at you.
