[Mathematica 6] What happened to the 5.2 HELP interface? Can one get it back?

When I click on help in Mathematica 6, the familiar help interface is all 

Now one gets a new thing called Documentation center.

I much prefer the old help interface. It was clear, and easy to use. The new 
one is hard to use and now one does not know where everything else is. There 
is no place to even enter something to search for. One must start by erasing 
the string "grid/Mathematica" from the little window at the top to clear it 
out. Very annoying.  before things where laid out in tabs. Now everything is 
a link and one must keep clicking on links all the time.

Is there a way to tell Mathematica 6 to use the old help interface (same 
help as in 5.2)? I looked as some options and such, but none there. I wish 
they kept the old help system there for those who want to use it.
