I have Mountain Lion and recently ran into some stuff with my AirPort and learned the current AirPort Utility Version (6.x) has been made more User Friendly wight he net result some capabilities have been removed.

This article

points out there are issues installing version 5.6.x under Mountain Lion, but provides a solution.

Maybe it is just my Windows background, but somehow the idea of having two programs on a computer with the same name just seems like a way to have unintended consequences.

I do want to keep Airport Utility 6.x - so can I rename the main or basic part of an OSX program just like I would a file and have things work normally? If the answer to that is No, how about sticking the 5.6 version in a different location?
