OK, your friend doesn't know of a local Linux User Group (and in Aus "local" 
extends a lot further than in the UK) but there probably is local net access, 
and perhaps even a local Linux user. Give us some idea of how remote her 
location is - this is likely to be more an issue of communications channels 
and willingness on her part to get involved.

She should be able to identify and possibly fix any problem with Knoppix of 
similar bootable CD distro and some instruction, possibly by phone.

Teamwork is essential -- it allows you to blame someone else.
