Assuming that Mathematica was installed in the default location, open a 
shell and cd to /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica. There you will find the 
installation for each version of Mathematica. Remove version 6 with "sudo 
rm -rf 6.0" (no quotes). If you don't have su privelages then ask someone 
who does. In addition a number of links are created in /usr/local/bin that 
you may want to remove. Lastly in your home directory you will find a 
.Mathematica directory which should contain your user installed packages 
etc and customizations. Remove this if you want.
