[OT] Spotlight and Tiger

Does anyone here know about a way to turn off all Spotlight activity 
and replace it with the the Panther style search?

I really, really HATE Spotlight. I just want to search filenames, not 
the content. In spotlight I get way more hits than I need. I design 
all my filenames to tell me all I need to know.

I also hate the way it anticipates my typing, as it blocks any other 
activity, and if you make a mistake, one is faced with the dreaded 
spinning beachball until it is ready. Finally there are hardly any 
adjustments in its panel to turn any of this behavior off. This thing 
blows so many HUI guidlines it's not funny.

Is anyone else annoyed with this horrible 'feature' of an otherwise great OS?
