It absolutely makes a difference in Windows - the last version installed
becomes the default application to open .fm, .mif and .book files.  So,
if the standard is v7.1, install v6.0 first, then install v7.1.

You will be able to run either version from the "start" menu (or if you
create icons on the desktop) but to open a file in FrameMaker 6 you will
have to use the File->Open command from within the program - you will
not be able to do so by double-clicking on the file name in an explorer
