Newbie Question, Any Advice Appreciated

Please bear through this very newbie question. I plan on buying a road bike for my friend but really can't afford to buy new. As such, I have resorted to Craigslist (please let me know if this is already a questionable move). She is 5'9 and only needs the bike for short commuting purposes (<6 miles) and is by no means an "experienced" rider. Essentially, she will want to go to and from school and work (~5 miles). Here are the most realistic options I have thus seen:

http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/1184791365.html
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/1183043232.html
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/1181886288.html

Do any of these seem like reasonable offers? Please reply on this forum or my email at muradianibrahim1@yahoo.com. Any advice at all is greatly appreciated, and thank you for bearing through this excruciatingly newbie question.
