Depends. I have 3 dualboot systems with WinXPPro on them; one with
CadCam (Autocad + others) uses about 16GB, another with other standard
junk (all have MS Office 2002 +Adobe Acrobat, FrameMaker, PageMaker, and
the like on them) again uses about 14GB, and the other with backups from
customer's systems uses about 25GB. So, I reckon that if the drive has
at least the required disk space as pointed out on: (5GB) then he should be able to install via
Wubi without much difficulty.
