    Hi

    I have a real quandry that has been bugging me for ages. I have a G4 ppc with 2 hard drives and an 80gb storage drive. 1 hard drive is running 10.4.11 and the other on 10.3.9. I always boot into 10.4.11 as it has Safari working on airport. My quandry is how can I access my CS2 on the 10.3.9 drive whilst I am in the 10.4.11 drive without rebooting into 10.3.9.

    I hope someone can guide me on this as it is driving me crazy.

    Many thanks

    Resources

    Need Adobe start up resources and folders in the 10.4 startup drive to be able to use the CS 2 from the 10.3 drive.

    ----------

    Look at the installer log for it and copy the files over or reinstall on the other drive.

    It's that simple

    On the drive with Photoshop should be an installer log for the photoshop. Open it look for what it installed into the system folder and copy it to the 10.4 drive and restart. It may not work due to serial number issue. Adobe didn't like people pirating their software.

    It would be easier to get the disk out and reinstall.

    You can get the CS2 Serial codes from adobe anyway!
