Using dates in batch files to rename files with yesterday's date

I have a script that gives me today's date in the following format 20081106. I need to change the script so that I get the date in the following format 081106.
Also, I would like another variance of the script to get yesterday's date.
@echo on
for /f "tokens=2-4 delims=/ " %%a in ('DATE/T') do set Date=%%c%%a%%b
echo %date%

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
