Version Control on a USB Memory stick

I am developing some code for a University project.
I am developing on 2 machines, one at home and on at University.
The one located at the University has no Internet connection.
Currently I am just copying the files to a USB stick when I have
finished editing, but eventually I can guarantee I will copy files in
the wrong direction, or forget to copy them to the stick and alter
both copies or erase some changes.
I have used version control for managing code before, and although it
is normally used for managing code from different developers I was
wondering whether it could be leveraged to help mitigate the risk of
me being stupid and editing the copies wrongly.
I can't use a shared or online drive as the machine located at the
University has no network access (its a Linux machine, and I can't get
it working properly on the University network).
Is it safe to put a CVS or Subversion repository on a USB stick?
Does anyone know of any better solutions to my problem or have an
recommendations to what version control I could use?
Both machines are running Ubuntu 6.06.
The Version Control working on Windows might be an advantage but as
the Windows machines are locked down to prevent software installation
then I doubt it matters too much (anyway developing on Linux is much
nicer, plus the code is for an embedded system running Linux so it
needs to be compiled and run on Linux)
Thanks for any advice you guys can provide
Did you think it should be legal to rip a CD to your PC or MP3 player?
