Yes, she just needs to install the DM which came on the CD with the BB on her laptop. Install the BIS (I believe the second option, which is NOT redirect).
This is how she should have started anyway. You don't want to waste the time entering phone numbers and email addresses directly into the BB. You get your contact information all set up in Outlook, and then with the DM and a USB cable sync your BB to Outlook, including contacts, calendar, tasks and notes.
I normally only sync mine about once a week, but since I have gone through 3 BBs in the last 8 weeks, I have never lost any contact information, just re-sync from outlook.
