Personally I would not install gutsy on someone elses computer. My
computers are my responsibility, if I balls them up I have nobody else
to blame but me.

How about installing feisty and giving them instructions on how to
upgrade to gutsy when it releases - maybe show them a screencast :)

http://screencasts.ubuntu.com/MoS2007/11_Updating_and_Upgrading

That one shows how to upgrade from one release to another.

You could also take Gutsy alternate CDs, so that you could install
feisty, and give them the alternate CD to upgrade from (if they wish),
then it's their responsibility if they naff it up.

I run Gutsy on three laptops and one server and Feisty on one desktop
and my main server. I'm loving Gutsy.

Good luck!

Take photos, and if you spend a lot of time doing ubuntu based
activities you could blog it and submit the link to Ubuntu Weekly News.

Cheers,
