There is no UI for linked clones - they can be created by Horizon, PowerCLI, or API methods.

Here is an example: Cloning virtual machines in vSphere series – Part 3: Linked Clones | IT Gaiden

If you are running anything like production workloads you should consider an upgrade - 6.0 is out of support and 6.5 only has 14 months remaining.
