Okay, I need a quick conversion from pounds of ground beef to cups (as the entry I found for ground beef has cups, not pounds). In specific, how much would one fifth of a pound of groud beef be in cups?

if you do a google search for conversion tables... you will find a program that will convert any measurement you want.... try this one and see if it helps

Thank you for your help, however the problem with this particular conversion is that it's from weight to volume.

I have a standard conversion program on my Palm that I use for metric to Engilsh or other types of conversions (cups to tablespoons and the like).

But in this, the converter must be specific to ground beef, because the density makes a HUGE difference in the conversion of weight to volume. In the end, I guesstimated, but would be nice to have something more exact.

My Weight Watchers Complete Food Companion says that 2 oz of ground beef, cooked, is 1/2 cup. It also shows that 1 lb raw ground beef translates into 12 oz cooked. So armed with those figures, you should be able to tally the cups for both raw and cooked ground beef for your recipe.
