    If she has Tiger, she can't get it. (Well...)

    If she has Leopard, it's in Applications, Utilities.

    She needs the Boot Camp Beta, which you need to Google for.

    Install it and have her set her clock back before December 31, 2007 and partition for Windows. Before installing, set the clock back to the right date.

    I know; Apple doesn't offer it anymore, which is why I said to Google it. You need to find one of the few third-party sources that still hosts the Beta for Tiger users.
