The general process is:
- unmount the file system
- remove journaling from the file system
- run a e2fsck on the file system
- mount the file system
- change the file system type field in /etc/fstab
Since you're wanting to revert an entire system, you'll have to boot off a
CD (a live CD or a rescue CD should do) to remove journaling from the root
