Have you bothered to upgrade to Premiere 5.0.3?
I am licensed and have Premiere 6.5 which I really like and have Premiere Pro 2.0 which I use sometime. However in order to go to HD I need to go to CS5. I currently am using the trial version just to make sure this is the way I want to go. Having said that.
I found the forum notes on how to add your unsupported video card and "WOW", I got the "yellow line". ie, it worked. I might add the following which may be helpful. The device manager say that the name of my video card is "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470". I could not get that to work so I added "GeForce GTX 470" to the list also. I am not sure which, if either, it is using, I now have an accelarated Mercury PE engine thanks to the instruction found on this forum.
These forum must save Adobe a lot of grief and sure makes our life a lot easier. However it would be nice if everything worked out of the box.

Mine worked right out of the box... read http://forums.adobe.com/thread/652694?tstart=0
But... I made sure to buy a TESTED & SUPPORTED nVidia card, so I did not have to "hack" the supported cards file
Now that you have hacked the file, you should do well... allowing for what is NOT in the demo version... http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/407/kb407938.html
I thought I was buying a supported card, but I guess it was not too clear.
I noticed today that I do get the YELLOW line over the clips, but when I
apply an effect (Color correction for example) it turns RED. I'm calling
that an operator problem until I prove otherwise.
Thanks for responding.
Support of the 470 out-of-the-box comes with 5.0.3 That is why Bill asked whether you had updated.
That brings up a good question for Adobe. Is the current download of the trial version always the latest version? I doubt you would be able to update a trial version.
OH! I should have known better. I just assumed that Adobe would use the latest version for the trial as they are trying to sell it and the fewer the problems the better. However, after taking a look, the trial version is 5.0.0.
Each time I bring up Premiere with the trial version it asks me if I want to buy it now or continue with the trial. I am not sure what they do about the manual (assuming they still have one) if you buy it now, but I had planned on buying a hard copy so that I will have a CD/DVD and manual.
I am still not sure why the time line status color changes from yellow to red when I apply a brightness and contrast effect to a clip with Mercury PE turned on, but I assume I will understand that when I get my final version.
As far as I know, no more paper manuals
CS5 User Guides - online and PDF - upper right corner has a link to the PDF, where you may right click to download and save the PDF

Sorry to disappoint you but there no longer is a hard copy manual. It is just soft copy or online for help.
If you can turn MPE hardware acceleration On, then maybe they at least changed the "cuda_supported_cards.txt" file in the trial download.
I guess you know that the trial version does not support anything MPEG.
Thank you Todd and John for straightening that out.

Another thing I discovered is that the trial version 5.0.0 does not import title files correctly from Premiere 6.5. It does not produce any error messages, but the images and lettering are all messed up. Perhaps if I push them from 6.5 to Pro 2.0 before going to CS5 they will come out correctly. Something to try.
