Hi John.

To disable pulseaudio, simply run the command below as root.

yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio

If you are using KDE this will also remove kde-settings-pulseaudio

Don't try removing all the pulseaudio rpm's, as one at least wants to remove a 
bunch of deps, and can screw up the sounds completely.

Removing the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio package will mean that your audio apps 
should be accessing alsa directly, as they were on Fedora versions (pre F8), 
before pulseaudio entered the equation.
