It shouldn't be that hard. I have the same problem at the hospital, and 
what I did was install Scribus to a USB flash memory stick, and run it 
from there.

One additional trick was to put in the stick before I logged in, since 
they also have the systems set up to not allow any mounting of devices 
beyond a certain number.
