Hi Gary,

This doesn't answer your question proper, but has your student  
considered experimenting with the beta MikTeX tools for Linux <http:// 

I haven't used MikTeX myself, but I have helped Windows colleagues  
migrate from MS Word to TeX (sometimes with Scientific Word as an  
intermediate step). MikTex made the install and maintenance process a  
breeze, and combined with WinEdt or TeXnicCenter convinced these  
colleagues to migrate.
