Wouldn't it be easier to carry around something like tomsrbt on a
business card CD in your wallet for FULL Linux support and SSH2?
(PuTTY's only SSH1 compatible.)

I'm trying to put together a solution for those times when I'm not around a machine armed with these. In situations where I can't just install apps on someone elses computer.

If I execute PuTTY will it leave a foot print on the machine? I'll be borrowing a mcahine to burn the CD so I kinda need to cover all the bases before hand.
