    Try making a shortcut manually (ie, see if it shows up in the list of icons to add).

    Maybe he put a custom ROM on there and didn't finish the job? What version is this G1 runnning? I think the highest official ROM is 1.6.

    Well, no one has posted what version of Android they're running so I can't help narrow it down more.

    If there is a market entry under Settings | Applications I'd clear data and see if that helps. If not, I think the next step is to reset the phone:
    Settings | SD card & phone storage | Factory data reset

    If you have an option to back up the phone before the reset that would be useful. Caveat: I think you have to reassociate with your Google account after the reset.
