I again offer you my "solution", which is to take with me "Live CDs"
for CentOS 5.2 and Knoppix. I reboot the box in an Internet cafe, from
a Live CD, do what I need/want to do, and when I am done, I remove the
Live CD and reboot the public box again. I have not installed anything
on their box and I am much safer, surfing, etc., on a public box.
