So far as I can tell on my own system, webMathematica will run fine with Mathematica 5.2. I have had trouble sometimes trying to have two different versions of Mathematica on my system at the same time, precisely because it's confused mathpass. The problem arises when the two versions have different license expiration dates and the later-expiring version looks at the date on the earlier-expiring one. It's not supposed to do that, but it has, and it's usually been fixed (after consultation with Wolfram Tech Support) by a reordering of the entries in mathpass or installation of the passwords. By the way, notice that the "official" name of the product uses a lower-case "w".
