I am having a 6 wired stepper motor, NMB-MAT PM42S-048 which i am trying to connect to Arduino. I searched for data sheets but wasn't able to find any related help. All i got was the 4 wire having different wire color code details. I am confused and not able to understand how i can control it.
CAn you please guide me, how can i do it so?

The link is broken.

That sounds like a unipolar stepper motor. It has two center-tapped phases. You connect the center taps to a power source and then switch the the ends of the coils to ground in sequence in order to turn the motor. See http://www.cs.uiowa.edu/~jones/step/ for Doug Jones's exhaustive stepper motor tutorial.
