Thanks a lot! Both Mac and Windows would be nice
I believe that iTunes is going to have some issue with the library being updated to iTunes 9 and then trying to go back down....
I'm fine with that
You will have to re-add everything though.
Found it today!
I've found this at Apple Discussions web:

Re: Downgrading iTunes 9 to 8

Actually, downgrading is an option.
1) Quit iTunes.
2) Delete iTunes from your Applications folder.
3) Go to your ~/Music/iTunes folder. Delete or rename the "iTunes Library" file.
4) Open the "Previous iTunes Libraries" folder and look for the backup of your old pre-9 library; it should be dated at about the time you first ran iTunes 9. Copy it back out to the ~/Music/iTunes folder, and rename it to "iTunes Library".
6) Go to http://support.apple.com/downloads/iTunes_8_2_1 and download iTunes 8.2.1. The page says it's for G3, but the Read Me file says it'll run on G4, G5, and Intel too. Open the diskimage and run the installer.
You should now be able to run iTunes 8.2.1 again.
And your iTunes will restore to before you upgraded and you won't lose anything.
