What I usually do in such cases (where I can't really change the older
verion of Vim on a particular machine) is to compile a version
yourself! You can essentially put all vim binary files in your bin
directory and have a copy of runtime in your home directory. You need
to set the VIMRUNTIME environment to point to it though.
Anyway, if you don't want to go through the hassle. Follow Benji's
