Yes, they can co-exist.  I have all versions of Mathematica installed 
since 4.2, for example.  You do have to keep in mind where you install 
your packages:  A package that is only compatible with V5.2 and earlier, 
when installed in $UserBaseDirectory/Applications/, will be available to 
both V6.0 as well.  Same applies to things in $UserBaseDirectory/Autoload.

As far as how to actually install V5.2 again, you will have to contact 
Technical Support to obtain a copy of the installation disc / files if 
you don't have one.

Disclaimer:  I don't know much about the licensing details of running 
both V5.2 and V6.0, so check with them.

Thanks,


Igor
