See "Exploring Abstract Algebra with Mathematica" by Hibbard and Levasseur (www.central.edu/eaam.html). 

Although not "Mathematica compliant", consider GAP (www.gap-system.org).  You can use best of both worlds (above book and GAP...perhaps pumping GAP output into Mathematica).

Has anyone had luck using mathematica for finite group theory?

We were playing with the Combinatorica package, but we couldn't figure 
out, for example, how to show the subgroup structure of a permutation 
group.  chris arthur
