    Well it finally happened. I had a drive go bad on my G5 desktop. Luckily I am all backed up on my G4 LAPTOP. I put a new drive in the G5 & installed OS 10.5 (the G4 lap runs 10.4) and installed the apps from the original discs onto the new G5 drive. However, I am missing my Photoshop CS2 disc.
    My question is, how do I transfer Photoshop CS 2 from my laptop to the new G5 drive? I don't want to buy another $200 CS2 app.
    All help is greatly appreciated.

    You can just copy the .app file from your applications folder. There may be some necessary files in that apps Library folder. Just keep pulling files over until it works. I've done it before with other apps.
    good luck.
