Unless you installed it in "compatibility mode" (which kept a somewhat
crippled version of the previous version around), it could not have done
so.  In order for IE to fully work properly, it needs to install
upgraded versions of the DHTML engine, networking DLLS, and various
other things into the system directory.  You might have been getting an
About box that showed IE5.0 for some reason?

but IE 6 was listed as "public preview" (in other words, "beta")... when
i
installed the IE 5.5 beta it left IE 5.0 on until i installed the
official
release of IE 5.5.

This is not a bug.  IE is based on a set of system services, like
MSHTML.DLL - when you install a new version of IE, you're upgrading
those services.  IE5.5 is gone.
