I have a game I would like to play, that requires the directX 6 files be on the
machine. I currently have directX 9c on my machine. Can directX 6 be installed
without harming my directX 9? Also, WHERE the heck can I find the Dx6 files to
download? I used Google to find some sites that CLAIMED to have a Dx6 Download,
but didn't. Any suggestions?

directx9 is retrocompatible, you don't need to install directx6.

And you shouldn't be downloading DLL files from unofficial sources on the internet either. That's a surefire way to see your PC into the sickbay.
