Ok, the problem is solved, the portable hard drive was automatically 
mounted as /Media/PLEOMAX and I was able to transfer the .iso file to 
it.  Now if she can burn the image and not produce another DVD with a 
.iso file I will be good to go!  The Mac is an unknown quantity to me ...

Thanks all for the help.
