Default Personal VPN

Hey, I was chatting with a friend in the US and we're wondering if this is doable.
Basically he has a PC in the US he is not using (running windows vista - so we'll need something that works on vista or a live CD) and an internet connection that has access to pandora, netflix... and all the cool stuff blocked outside the US.
He's coming to Lebanon for a long duration so we're wondering if we can transform the PC in the US into a VPN server that we could connect to from here?
What are your recommendations regarding the software we need and should use?

it is doable, but u need a speedy connection. **** netflix and pandora, u can get all the shit you want on rapidshare and filesonic. save yourself (and your friend) the trouble and let him enjoy beirut nightlife instead of jamming his head into Hulu.

I get everything I want from torrents so that's not the problem, I have everything setup so I get my TV shows ready in the morning the night after they are aired in the US so I am not really missing anything. :P
He just wanted to get Pandora here and I told him it might be doable using VPNs so that's why I asked.

Thanks Google I'll look into it.

You can try hotspot shield, it's a proxy that will emulate a us ip address. Also if he wants pandora on his phone, he should look for similar emulators, no vpn is needed.

Buy OpenVPN account for ~15-30$/m.
Then you don't need to do anything, just connect & go.
If you need I can give you contacts of those who offer such services, or you can find some sites in Google.

The OP said his friend has a PC in the US running Windows Vista so he can setup the OpenVPN server himself.

And he has to keep his PC on-line all time.
