You can easily disable pulseaudio by a:
yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio

Now everything will go direct through Alsa. If you use KDE, doing the above 
will also remove kde-settings-pulseaudio.

If you use any SDL audio apps, add the line below to /home/user/.bashrc.
unset SDL_AUDIODRIVER

This will remove the hack that SDL programs need to use pulseaudio.

I disabled it myself on F8. Some have said that they have it working just 
fine, and have also seen the same today on the Debian list, where someone 
using Debian Sid (unstable) say's they are very pleased with pulseaudio.

I don't know. Perhaps I just don't like new things being thrust on me. As an 
example udev has caused folks problems with the ordering of devices (myself 
included), which wasn't there pre udev.
