Doing a downgrade will take you way off the beaten path.
You will be breaking a new trail.

I'd suggest getting a new hard drive doing a fresh install of
6.10 then copying what you need from your 7.04 old drive(s)
onto you new 6.10 system.

If that's not an option make sure you make a backup of
of /home  /etc  and maybe even  /var depending on what
you have going.

I can't believe how cheap storage is getting.  Was just at
Costco and saw 1 Terabyte ( 2 - 500 GB drives ) in a box
with a 10/100/1000 network interface you can either
run it as 1 TB or a mirrored 500 GB.  Don't know what
network protocols it supports.  It's marketed as plug and
play for Windows users who wouldn't know the difference
between NFS, SMB, and a hole in the ground.  All for
$344.95 USD.

Anyway make sure you have a copy of what you need to
preserve before you start.
