Well I sorted it out at last but my disks didn't work. I think there was a conflict between the installation of the previous version and and the recovery partition on the hard disk. It suggested that I can only load Lion with an internet connection and then i noticed that there was a menu bar allowing me the possibility of connection with airport. I entered the necessary router key and then i was away. It failed to install Lion from Apple the first time but on the second attempt everything went perfectly. So now am just uploading my wife's files and she'll be a very happy bunny that her machine is back in working order without all the freezing etc problems she was having.

Thanks for the pointers.
Cheers.
