Of particular interest is are recommendation that users delete previously installed application files before attempting the Adobe Photoshop CS 2.0 install.

Adobe says:
‘Files that are installed during a failed installation take up hard disk space and can cause problems the next time you run the installer. If an attempt to install Adobe Photoshop CS2 fails, check for any files that did install and then delete them. If you attempt to reinstall Adobe Photoshop CS2 without first deleting these files, the installer may not be able to overwrite the existing files and the hard disk may not have enough free space for the entire application.”

Other suggestions include:
Install Adobe Photoshop CS2 with the Login Items disabled for the user account
Reinstall Adobe Photoshop CS2 from within a new user account.
Remove fonts from the Fonts folder in the Library folder before installing Adobe Photoshop CS2.”
