Long story short: My little sister got the last g5 imac. She somehow deleted itunes, and reinstalled it from her old ipod mini cd and ended up with itunes 4.5. Whenever we try to install the upgrade to 6, it won t allow it. if you do a custom install, everything is greyed out, and in easy install says you can t install it on this computer. any suggestions on how to get around this

Her Mac is probably seeing the receipts from previous installations of iTunes and thinks it's up-to-date. Go to the top-level Library folder (not the ones under her user folder or System), then go to the Receipts folder. You'll likely find several iTunes-related .pkg files. Deleting them should allow you to get iTunes up-to-date.
