I decided to upgrade my itunes, downlaoded the files, and stated the process all went fine until i got a bit eager and opened itunes before I restarted the computer. now itunes is still itunes 5.1 but the computer thinks it is itunes 6.0.

the quick time install that went with it is working fine

I hope this makes sense, really would like to give itune 6 a go, eager for a response

Tried deleting iTunes.app and reinstalling it via the installer?

I'm not on a Mac now, so i can't check, but aren't your playlists and stuff stored in your home directory with your music?

Deleting iTunes.app won't delete your play lists. All your play lists, music, settings are stored in ~/Music/iTunes/
As long as they stay intact, so will your playlists.
