Downgrade from RH9 to RH8?

I have an x86 machine running RedHat 9, and, for a variety of reasons, may need to back off to RH 8. Is this possible in any sort of straightforward way via the install disks, or am I asking for a first-class nightmare?

You need to delete RH9 and instal RH8, I'm afraid (if you have a separate /home it shouldn't be so much pain).
