Rolling back to 10.3.9?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
My friend wants to roll his system back from 10.4.x to 10.3.9, but but he wants to keep his files/setting in tact as much as possible. Which option from the install disc is best?

1.) Upgrade Mac OS X - This would be the ideal choice, but I'm not sure it would work going backwards from 10.4 to 10.3.

2.) Archive and Install - Most likely what he'll have to do, but is there data that won't transfer over correctly? (Mail 2.0 files, for example?)

3.) Erase and Install - Not something he wants to do, obviously. \

    The CD will refuse to do anything bar an erase and install, I believe. It certainly won't allow an upgrade.
