You should be able to, in theory at least. Once you get into the setup menu
go to options and change the release from 4.9 to 4.1.1-RELEASE and when
you go to install it should pull the 4.1.1 down instead. The main problem
you'll find is a finding a FTP mirror that still has the 4.1.1
binaries sitting around.
I can't even guess if such a beast exists.
