If she's running windows xp then she should use AIM Messenger which will allow full video/audio between the both of you (assuming you use iCHat)

For the MSN network I use aMSN on my mac and my ladyfriend uses the standard msn on her PC. It runs well for just video, no supprt for audio yet but fingers crossed

Yeha, I'm thinking that iChat (You) and AIM (Her) is probably the best solution
