The Technical Support FAQ titled, "Can I create a two-axis graph in 
Mathematica?" should answer your question. See,

http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/graphics/2d/twoaxisgraph.html


Note that you must *not* load the packageGraphics`MultipleListPlot` when 
working with version 6.x. For instance,

In[1]:= $Version
TwoAxisPlot[{f_, g_}, {x_, min_, max_}, frange_,
grange_, (opts___)?OptionQ] :=
Module[{old, new, scale, pts, gstuff, fstuff}, {fm, fM} = frange;
{gm, gM} = grange;
scale[var_] = ((var - gm)*(fM - fm))/(gM - gm) + fm;
old = AbsoluteOptions[
Plot[g, {x, min, max}, Frame -> True, PlotRange -> grange,
DisplayFunction -> Identity], FrameTicks][[1, 2, 2]];
new = (Prepend[Rest[#1], scale[First[#1]]] &) /@ old;
Plot[{f, scale[g]}, {x, min, max}, Frame -> True,
PlotRange -> frange + {0, .05 (fM - fm)},
FrameTicks -> {Automatic, Automatic, None, new},
PlotStyle -> {{RGBColor[1, 0, 0]}, {RGBColor[0, 0, 1]}},
FrameStyle -> {{}, {RGBColor[1, 0, 0]}, {}, {RGBColor[0, 0, 1]}},
opts]]
TwoAxisPlot[{x^3, Sqrt[x]}, {x, 0, 4}, {0, 64}, {0, 2}]
TwoAxisPlot[{Sqrt[x], x^3}, {x, 0, 4}, {0, 2}, {0, 70}]

Out[1]= "6.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (May 21, 2008)"
