Reading coordinates from a 2D Plot

Hi,
In previous versions of Mathematica under Windows, you could read the x,ycoordinates of a point, say the min of x^2 + 5. You could measure the minimum by clicking on the graphics and paste it in an input cell for further processing. The coordinates were also displayed in the lower left corner of the window.
With repeated steps one could get a lot of coordinates and fit them with e.g. NonlinearFit.
How do I do it in Mathematica 6? I need this features badly for my students.
