If you run Debian or Ubuntu you can do this with the package system.

  apt-get install postgresql-8.2 postgresql-7.4

The two versions are automatically installed to run on different ports.
Look at the docs and manpages for the postgresql-common package to see
how it works.

If you can't do that, you can install a different version from source in
a different directory tree; then have its postmaster run on a different
port.  Specify the port number when connecting so as to get to the
postmaster you want.
