Just a note on the attached code:

def isPro52Num(n):
        for i in range(1,7):
        for i in s[0]:
                ll = len(string.join(string.split(s[0],i),''))
                for j in range(1,6):
                        if ll!=len(string.join(string.split(s[j],i),'')):
                                return False
        return True

The functions in the string module have been deprecated ages ago in favor of the corresponding string methods.
In this expression: len(string.join(string.split(s[0],i),'')) if you want to get "the number of digits in s[0] that are not i" I think it's way faster (and more clear) to do len(s[0])-s[0].count(i) instead of creating two lists just to throw them away.
