Question How do I revert to Bind 8 from Bind 9?

While on vacation, Red Hat's update agent updated me to Bind 9 ... after perusing the 'net for a while, I know I don't want this.

How can I uninstall BIND 9 and revert back to BIND 8?

I don't even know where to start ... please help.

Perhaps I'm missing the point but...

1) Uninstall BIND9
2) Reinstall BIND8

The format of the config file (named.conf) is mainly identical.

I don't know where to begin with uninstall BIND 9. Since it was through the RH update agent, is it in the RPM datbase? and if so, what are the dependencies I have to watch out for?
