    I'm about to install Lion. If I decide it's not for me at this point, what's the process for rolling back to Snow Leopard?

    getting back to snow leopard

    BEFORE YOU INSTALL LION MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A RECENT TIME MACHINE BACKUP.

    if you decide that lion isn't for your. simple insert your snow leopard dvd and hold down the option key. from there you can restore your machine from your latest time machine back up.

    it worked for me.

    Make sure your Time Machine, and disk image backups are current before installing Lion. Then, you can restore using whichever method is the most current (I usually have a few hours between my last disk image and when I do the OS update/upgrade, so I always do one last Time Machine backup before beginning.)

    I use the same methodology for both point updates and major upgrades.
