Load SuSE CD # 1 into your Windows box CD. Look for the Dos utils directory
(my CDs are at home, so I can't give you the exact path)

In that directory is PuTTY. It's a delightful SSH terminal with good
features. It's only CLI, not X.

I've even gotten many of my co-workers using it at the office! :)
