have they got a custom(or modified default) theme in place? if yes, then 
about reverting to the default Kubrick & seeing whether the blog comes 
up or
also, check if they've the wordpress files in the same directory from 
which they
access it, or is it like that wordpress core is in another directory & 
frontend is
in another?
