I've done this by carrying a usb key with my favourite stuff.
(e.g. ssh + cygwin1.dll + ssh_config, in a directory, or putty, plus 
whatever other useful stuff I can think of that fits.) Means I don't 
have to reboot their system.

You could also carry a livecd or a liveusb key - you reboot their 
system, but it never touches their hard drive. (And if you partition 
your key, and perhaps even if not, you can put this stuff on one side, 
and the above stuff on the other.)

I've used this to ssh home then tunnel through it to my systems with 
vnc. [Doing some of what John's message suggests, but he says it 
better.] e.g. From Conestoga college, library, etc.

If you have a PDA, don't know if there's something in there you might 
find useful. e.g. You could ssh home, just not sure you'd want to from 
a pda. But could be useful for a quick log in to tail a log file or 
see if someone's dropped a file you were waiting for. Tethering?
