According to the Bantu FAQ Javascript also needs to be turned on, is  
it? (This is set on the "Security" tab of Safari's preferences. Java  
can also be turned on or off here.)

Any version of Java 1.1 or newer is all that's need so the version  
she has shouldn't be an issue for the Bantu software. Is her OS X  
installation up to date, i.e. has she installed 10.3.9? If so there  
is an issue that can cause Java to crash. The most recent Java update  
for 10.3.9 addresses this problem:


This KB article explains the update and tells you how to reset some  
Java related things - which she may need to do.
