Are you using a recipe software like Beersmith, if so you can adjust pretty easily, if not you should, but I can adjust it for you.

In Beersmith, have the recipe in with the correct amounts (6 gallons, 70%), and then right above the words "Recipe View" is a button that says "Scale". click that, and enter the new Batch Size and Efficiency, it will then change it all to make it correct.

thanks so much! OK, i think I did it. I still am very green, and have no idea my efficiency, or really how to calculate it. could i just leave it at 70% for now, and will that get me in the ballpark? and is a 6 gallon boil for a 5 gallon batch about right?
here's what it gave me:

Just leave it at 70%. It is not important since you are using extract. That is only important for all grain.

He is using 6 gallons batches, staring with (roughly) 7 gallons prior to the boil, 6 gallons after the boil, ferment 5.5 gallons, and finally package 5 gallons.

But, yes start with 6 gallons to have 5 gallons at the end of the boil. The scaled recipe you posted looks good.

That looks right, if your getting your grain crushed at the homebrew store, you would probably going to be in the 70% range anyway, since most homebrew stores mills are set to allow a good balance between lauterability and efficiency, and for extract it really doesn't matter.

The recipes in that book are set up for 6 gallons for a few reasons. 6 gallons at the end of the boil lets you leave behind about .5 gallon in the kettle with the hops and break material. It also allows to leave behind another .5 gallon in the fermenter so you end up bottling/kegging 5 gallons of beer.
