Downgrading from BizTalk 2006 R2 to plain 2006 doesn't seem to be a well-trodden path. It's not ideal, but if you have to do it, the following steps should get you there:

  • Uninstall BizTalk 2006 R2 from Add/Remove programs
  • Try to uninstall Enterprise SSO from Add/Remove programs*
  • Remove the BizTalk databases (detach the databases in SQL Server, then remove the MDF and LDF files)**
  • Delete all the BizTalk-related SQL Server Agent jobs
  • Unregister the Notification Service for BAM Alerts
  • Install & Configure BizTalk 2006

* - I had issues with SSO where the uninstall kept crashing halfway through. Eventually removed it by selecting "modify" then removing the core components – "Server" and "Administration". Then it was happy to reinstall from the 2006 setup.

** - you can unconfigure the instance instead, but this way lets you backup the data files, in case you think you'll need them.

Please let me know if there is other ideal scheme other than BIZ talk 2006. For now, BIZ talk is quite helpful for me.
