Metal Window Frames: How do you hang a rod safely

I have a window in my office at work and I need to hang curtains. It has a t-bar ceiling and a metal (non magnetic) frame around the window. Can you drill right into the metal?

Any suggestions?

Metal Window Frames: How do you hang a rod safely

You need a spring loaded or twist-to-lock adjustable rod that does not require drilling or other permanent modifications. You should be able to find something at your local home center or kitchen and bath shop.
