I don't know what to tell you. I just copied the line you posted to the end of my init.m file and started Mathematica to get the following results:

In[1]:=$GuideBooksTOC
Out[1]=
"/usr/share/Mathematica/AddOns/GuideBooks/TableOfContents.nb"

In[2]:=$Version
Out[2]="5.2 for Mac OS X (June 20, 2005)"
