I'm trying to export my sequence from FCP (version 6.0.6) and what's happening is that the exported .mov file (via "export quicktime movie) appears brighter than the sequence within final cut.
My FCP seems to do this with various projects I have, and I'm not sure what to do in order to keep the integrity of the color corrected image that I have been working on within the project (note: the image brightens regardless if it was color corrected or not).
I'm hoping to make a dvd and it seems that any setting I try and export with messes with the brightness.
My DVD guy says he's never seen anything like this.
Can anyone please shed light on this most frustrating issue please.

That's really most of your answer right there. Without a monitor that's capable of accurately displaying your footage in the proper color space, you just don't know what it really looks like. Most likely, your footage is a little bright to begin with.
