Try http://www.mingw.org/ it is a little more work to install than cygwin and you have to write your own fstab but I think you only have to download exe and put them where ever you want.

Remote In/out/back In

Couldn't you put putty on a thumb drive to ssh into a linux machine (preferably inside the network), mount your windows drives from that linux box, then run all the linux apps you need on those mounted windows drives?

Or, you could check out this site...

Smile Damn Small Linux

This should give you what you need:

http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/


There are screenshots and complete install instructions, just run it from your USB flash drive.

Basic Summary:

DSL was originally developed as an experiment to see how many usable desktop applications can fit inside a 50MB live CD. It was at first just a personal tool/toy. But over time Damn Small Linux grew into a community project with hundreds of development hours put into refinements including a fully automated remote and local application installation system and a very versatile backup and restore system which may be used with any writable media including a hard drive, a floppy drive, or a USB device.

DSL has a nearly complete desktop, and many command line tools. All applications are chosen with the best balance of functionality, size and speed. Damn Small also has the ability to act as an SSH/FTP/HTTPD server right off of a live CD. In our quest to save space and have a fully functional desktop we've made many GUI administration tools which are fast yet still easy to use. What does DSL have?

XMMS (MP3, CD Music, and MPEG), FTP client, Dillo web browser, Netrix web browser, FireFox, spreadsheet, Sylpheed email, spellcheck (US English), a word-processor (Ted), three editors (Beaver, Vim, and Nano [Pico clone]), graphics editing and viewing (Xpaint, and xzgv), Xpdf (PDF Viewer), emelFM (file manager), Naim (AIM, ICQ, IRC), VNCviwer, Rdesktop, SSH/SCP server and client, DHCP client, PPP, PPPoE (ADSL), a web server, calculator, generic and GhostScript printer support, NFS, Fluxbox and JWM window managers, games, system monitoring apps, a host of command line tools, USB support, and pcmcia support, some wireless support.

I installed cygwin earlier this week. It works great, much better than it did at home in Wine.
