Maya 7 has a compass in the top right hand corner, with the points for top, bottom, front, back, left and right. Click each relevant point and the camera will move to each relevant view. Be aware clicking this only simlulates the Orthographic views. You are still in perspective mode to go back to the standard persp view by click the bluesquare in the middle.
