since this has come up more than once, I would like to mention that
actually I think everything is still there, it is just not documented
and of course deprecated, but for most purposes it is probably not
necessary to have a Version 5 installed in parallel. E.g. you can export
a Graphics3D as a 2D-Vector-Graphic just as Version 5 did doing the
following:

Get["Version5`Graphics`"]

Plot3D[x, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}]

now select the graphics, 'do save selection as' and choose a filename
ending in e.g. eps. Of course one could try to automate the process and
have a function do all that in one go. Of course you are limited to the
graphics functionality of version 5. Oh, and don't forget to:

Get["Version6`Graphics`"]

to get back the new default behaviour.


hth,

albert
