Gallery isn't installed onto your server, but rather into your domain directory. The Gallery 2 one-click install provided through the panel is just a convenience for those who don't want to do the installation manually. You should be able to download and install Gallery 1.5.7 to your domain.
Please note that I haven't done this myself, as I am happy with the Gallery 2 one-click install.
