Same issue, but Times32 install crashed on one comp (I tested on 3). The reason I posted the fix that I did is that it works on ANY system, regardless, and doesn't require either this Times32 fix, or Winetricks, to get a fully functional Photoshop CS2 install. Simply mod a file that CS2 will create, and bingo! you're done, and you don't even have to have a working net conenction.

Thanks for the post, though. Mine's just an alternate (and far easier) method of fixing the same issue.

I wasn't posting a question, I was posting a solution. :) My CS2 works perfectly, without any hacks, additions, added fonts or winetricks modules.
