Copy the files from ~/.gnupg on your linux box to USB. You should have
at minimum, pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, trustdb.gpg, and optionally gpg.conf.
On Windows machine, copy all of the above files to %APPDATA%\GnuPG.
APPDATA is an environment variable you may reference at a command
prompt. You may also enter %APPDATA% into Explorer's Address bar and it
will handle expanding things. APPDATA mormally expands to
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\
