If the physical catalog/folder where the 6.04 dataset resides in, containes just ver 6.04 files, then

libname previous 'mycatalog';

will be sufficient. (See, the message in log after issuing this) If a catalog contains datasets of different versions

libname previous v604 'mycatalog';

will be sufficient.

If you want to convert datasets between different versions:

libname old v604 'mycatalog'; libname new v611 'mycatalog';

data new.mydset; set old.mydset; run;

!NB Online documentation can be reached with issuing help libname from SAS command line.

If you like assigning libnames with the new libname dialog better, (Globals,Access,Display libraries or dlglib command) then the different engines can be selected using the advanced button under new library definition
