On Fedora 8,9, and 10, simply removing the package alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, 
will disable pulseaudio. If you also have KDE installed, removing the above 
package will also remove kde-settings-pulseaudio package.

If you have any SDL audio apps, add the line below to ~/.bashrc, which will 
remove the hack that SDL programs needed to use pulseaudio.


All the best.
