Have her boot from the install disk ("C" at startup) and follow the instructions to reinstall the OS, you can further wipe the drive by reformatting it with disk utility if you want the data to be really gone, and if you really want it gone then use Disk Utility to overwrite the drive.

If you need further instructions I can point you to some documentation.
