CS2 can run on Windows 7.
The Adobe installer will poop out on the installation path with parentheses so instead of the path "C:/Program File (x86)/Adobe" you need to install it to "C:/Progra~2/Adobe". Once installed, you can right-click on the Photoshop EXE to set the preference to run as an administrator and to run with XP compatibility.
In addition to what Marian has said, you can be sure Photoshop CS2 has no awareness of Windows 7's UAC (User Account Control) feature, because it's so much older, so when Photoshop is trying to write files into its installation area or protected parts of the registry, it may fail. What I don't know is whether Microsoft's installer subsystem recognizes the Adobe CS2 installer and makes the appropriate decisions (it does this for many apps). You may need to use "Run As Administrator" or lower the UAC protection level on your system to get both the installer and application to work properly.
People suggest Virtual XP but that shouldn't be a first choice... Photoshop will be far better integrated if it can be made to run under the new OS natively. I know that Photoshop CS2 can be made to run under Vista x64 and that Photoshop 6.0 can run under Windows 7 x64 by my own personal experience, which means that there's a pretty good chance Photoshop CS2 can run under Windows 7 without virtualization.
Set that way (Notifications Disabled) it's off. You are running as an admin full time and all the magic crap that happens where Windows waylays your application's attempts to write in different "newly verboten" places is turned off. Most knowledgeable people end up turning UAC off. I suspected you had done the same.
