hi.
Is there something wrong in using the Frobenius method for regular singular point while solving Legendre's differential equation (expanding about x=0)? Though the solution of Legendre Differential Equation here http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Legendr...lEquation.html uses the other form. But my book uses the Frobenius method for regular singular point.. ( Forbenius method http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FrobeniusMethod.html )

No, there is nothing at all wrong with that. But there are many different ways of solving the same differential equation.
