It should be possible, but propably not by simply installing the .deb /
.rpm with your distributions package manager.

I can imagine several ways:

- Compile yourself, but reconfigure to use different pathes before. You
also have to adopt the start / init scripts and config files to use
different pathes, and different unix socket or network interface / port.

- Create a chroot environment, and configure your postmaster to an
appropriate socket / network config

- Use UML to run PostgreSQL in there.


Btw: Why dou you need such an old PostgreSQL version? Do you make
compatibility tests?
