a) what's wrong with Ticks -> {{0, Pi/2, Pi, (3*Pi)/2, 2*Pi},Automatic}
b) I don't think that there is a version 6. of Mathematica and
   *if* anyone has seen that version he had to sign a 
   non disclosure agreement that he will not talk about it
   and not post any information about it into news groups.
