GnuPG (win32) on a USB stick

I want to keep GnuPG on a USB stick to use at school and on other people's
computers (all windows). However, GPG, when run, creates the keyrings and
conf files on the HDD (documents and settings\appdata). Is it possible to
avoid this behavior and have GnuPG write those files, say, in its own dir on
my usb stick? How would I do this?

Also, this would probably have to involve me keeping my private key on the
usb stick, protected only by a passphrase. How secure is this? Are there any
better ways to do it?

Thanks in advance.
