If you can get another copy of 7.4 installed that's built for the same
processor as the database was originally running from and then point it
at your old data directory it should be able to use it.  I.e. something

  postmaster-7.4 -D /path/to/old/data

It is probably worth working with a copy of the data just in case
something strange happens.

If you want to stay with 7.4 then you're done, if you want to upgrade
to a newer release (i.e. 8.2 or 8.3) of PG then you should do a pg_dump
from the newer version's dump program.

The pgsql-general(at)postgresql(dot)org mailing list is probably the best place
to ask these sorts of questions.  They are described here:
