Downgrade is not supported. that will probably just hurt more.

you just did part of the upgrade process. I would check your backups
first of all. if those are valid you could restore your systemfiles back
to etch.

If those are not valid, or you realy want to upgrade to lenny,
you should take a backup right away to have some kind of point to
restore to. And then read the upgrade document [1] and try to compleate
the upgrade.

Good luck.
