As I mentioned this is in a remote office so I'm troubleshooting it via email and phone with a non technical person but I'll check if they actually plugged the screen in at that point and what they saw if they did.

We booted from an Ubuntu CD we had downloaded and chose the option to overwrite the whole disk. I don't believe there is any Apple software on the disk but I must admit I'm not really sure how the installer does it.
