Two important points here. The first is: you can't install the system
from the Ubuntu Live CD. You have to use the install CD for that. The
second is: has she got two CD drives? If she hasn't, then you can't
use the Live CD to back up data to a CDR, because the Live CD will be
in the CD drive...

Is her machine so screwed that it can't burn CDs from Windows?
