Downgrade gdm in FC9?

Hi, I'm trying out Fedora 9 in a VM to see if it's worthy for purposes of upgrading another computer. I'm not very impressed with it at all, for all its unfinished software (firefox 3 is bad enough, let alone gdm 2.22). I'm wondering whether it's possible to revert to gdm 2.20, either by building from source or otherwise? (I tried building from source, but apparently this requires a highly customised build environment, since installing the dependencies clearly wasn't enough.) It seems the new Ubuntu LTS comes with gnome 2.22 yet uses gdm 2.20. Or, at the very least, is it possible to get back to a (GUI) prompt that asks for a typed username/password as opposed to listing all users (like Windows XP does in its non-professional mode)? Thanks in advance.
