Make sure she upgrades to CU version 3.1 if she has a serial #. It's the
lesser of two evils. :)

There's two ways for her to do it..
If she's NOT connected to anywhere:
1) Load up the PhoneBook, click Test Setup
2) In the middle of the screen is a setting for Codec...Click it and
select Cornell CU-SeeMe Gray
3) Click OK
4) Connect
If she's already connected to you:
1) Click Customize...drop down to Configuration and select it
2) In the lower half of the screen will be a selection for Codec..Click it
and select Cornell CU-SeeMe Gray
3) Click OK

If she's already connected to you in color and then switches to B&W and
you're using the Cornell 0.84b7 version, you'll have to disconnect and
reconnect to see her. (Invalid null assertion errors)
